Hemsby Broads Rescue were paged this morning at 10:28 to reports of a male in the water one mile west of Horning. He was unable to recover to his boat and was in some distress, having spent some time in the water and taken in some water too.

Luckily he had a flotation aid to assist him in keeping afloat. Our crew arrived on scene within 28 minutes of being paged. Also on Scene Winterton Coast Guard, the Ambulance Service and Multiple Fire Service units.

The casualty was recovered to safety with a slight injury to his hand, although precautions were taken as there was a risk of secondary drowning.  

Hemsby Lifeboat pass on our thanks to all the agencies who assisted in what could have been a serious incident. Enjoy the Broads but stay safe. Remember always wear life jackets when your on or near the waters edge. Lifejacket’s save lives.

Hemsby Broads Rescue was paged last night at 22:30 ending what had been a very busy day for the Crew with the earlier incident and fundraising event in the evening.

This was no usual incident but one that was totally avoidable. Six or so intoxicated adults on a Cruiser thought it was a good idea to ignore the regulations that protect people on the Broads and perform high-speed manoeuvres between Reedham and Brundall, where they eventually Moored their craft.

Hemsby Broads Rescue was tasked to launch at Reedham Ferry and proceed to Brundall to assist any casualty craft innocently affected by the inconsiderate and dangerous behaviour of these overzealous partygoers!

Our thanks to Gorleston and Winterton Coast Guard Teams who joined us on this task, also all the residents and boat owners who assisted us during the task with valuable information, allowing us to identify the rogue craft.

The crew involved in the incident were finally stood down by the Coastguard once it was clear all boats were safely moored and the party was over. Leaving a tired crew to return to base, wash-down refuel and complete the paperwork before finally getting home at around 0245, for 4 or 5 hours well-earned sleep before training in the morning.

Loss of life or injury on the Broads is something to be avoided and our voluntary service has only one mission to rescue and preserve life. As a crew, we often wonder when people will realise the clear and present danger of excessive drinking and operating a boat in the confined conditions of the Norfolk Broads.

Sadly these midnight revellers had no consideration for the other decent individuals moored up on the Broads last night. Please don't drink and operate craft at any time, anywhere and particularly not at night. Stay safe and enjoy our beautiful broads.

Did the boat involved get identified? I was moored at reedham and there was a few folk (including kids) thrown out of bed and mooring ropes broken on one of sandersons boats as it went through, I heard that the wash went over the floating pontoon at hardly mill and knocked a load of candles over on a boat there (not sure why you'd have candles on a boat, sounds mad to me).
The rangers seemed to be out if force sunday looking around the brundall marinas.

26/06/2019 Team responded to a report of a horse stuck in the mud by the River Bure.  At scene the NF&R were already engaged in coaxing a Shetland Pony Foal to come off the mud flat.  The foal had somehow found a gap in the fence from the opposite side of the river and ended up on the mud flat.  The firefighters from Great Yarmouth and the USAR at Dereham managed to catch the foal and ferried it back over the river where it was reunited with its mother.  #063/19

They could have been Citronella candles to keep the flies and
mozzies away at this time of the year. If we use them, they
are always placed on a large plate or similar in case of getting
knocked over.

Hemsby Broads Rescue was paged at 1430 today just after the Martham Carnival Parade, to assist an Ice Cream vendor on the Broads, who was experiencing engine difficulties and had lost all power while delivering assorted Ice Cream treats to the pleasure craft on the Broads. With no power, the casualty boat was in danger of drifting into the path of other craft on a busy stretch of waterway.

Splitting our crew we managed to continue to entertain the visitors to the Martham Carnival with our popular bottle tombola and still respond quickly to the call form Humber Coastguard to assist the stricken vendor. Our crew quickly located the casualty vessel and took her under tow to a safe mooring to await further mechanical assistance.

Once safely moored the crew were rewarded with a complimentary mint chocolate cornet with flake, which in the hot conditions was gratefully received. The crew did consider those left to man the tombola but it was decided impractical, given the weather conditions, to try and transport any of the minty treats to the crew left in Martham and so they were consumed on scene!

All the crew at Hemsby Lifeboat would like to convey their thanks to the Ice Cream Boat for their kind cash donation and minty treats and also the locals and visitors to Martham Carnival, who supported our Tombola and also made donations during the parade. Also thanks to Humber Coastguard who’s coordination, command and control was faultless as always.

As an independent service, we are always so grateful to all those who support our efforts with donations, without you it would be almost impossible for us to provide our vital rescue services at sea and on the boards.

So thank you again, stay safe on the water and always wear a lifejacket when on or at the water's edge.

05/07/2019 Team tasked to report of a small speedboat that had broken down and was drifting towards Haven Bridge.  An interim message reported vessel alongside at South Quay.  The casualty vessel needed assistance to get back through the bridge in order to be towed to Burgh Castle, and this was rendered by our colleagues of the Gorleston RNLI ILB.  #068/19.

Hemsby Broads Rescue were paged today at 09:50 to assist the Ambulance Service to evacuate an injured 70 year old male who had fallen on his leisure craft injuring his knee. Although not life threatening, he was in significant discomfort and unable to move.

The location of the craft on the Broads was such that the Ambulance Service via the Coastguard requested assistance with the safe evacuation of the casualty to the waiting Ambulance.

Hemsby Rescue deployed to the Broads from the Lifeboat Station while another crew member who was mobile arrived ahead of the main party.

Quickly assessing the situation it was decided that the leisure craft was better moved with the casualty to a mooring closer to the waiting Ambulance to save time and further discomfort to the injured gentleman.

After the vessel was safely moored the entire crew under the supervision of the Ambulance Service, Winterton and Gorleston Coastguards recovered the casualty to the Ambulance by stretcher for treatment to a suspected soft tissue injury.

This was a smooth multi agency operation conducted professionally across all agencies. Thanks also to the other leisure boat users, who adjusted their moorings to make room for the casualty craft and also offered the emergency services a rousing round of applause on completion of the task. Thank you one and all for your assistance and support.
