Hemsby Broads Rescue was paged on the 4th August at 1100 to assist a female casualty who had accidentally fallen from her boat while moored, between Thurne and St Benet's Abbey. The casualty fell awkwardly into the water and injured her ribs.  

Hemsby Broads Rescue was quickly on scene and was able to ensure the casualty was comfortable and out of danger before relocating the boat, with four other persons onboard to a new mooring at St Benet's where the Ambulance Service and Winterton Coastguard were waiting.

As a precaution, the casualty was transported to the hospital for an x-ray, but it is thought that her ribs were just badly bruised.

We want people to enjoy all the waterways in Norfolk, but never underestimate the risk. Please we urge you, when on boats or near the water please do wear a lifejacket, it does mean the difference between life and death.

As always our thanks to Winterton Coastguard and the crew who helped washdown and prepare the station for the next call, and our best wishes to the casualty and her family, we hope you enjoy the rest of your holiday.

Hemsby Broads Rescue was paged today at 1600 to reports that a vessel had sunk on Little Broad Hoveton, with persons in the water. Also paged were Bacton and Winterton Coastguard teams.

With a full crew and all the appropriate equipment for this type of job, we proceeded to Hoveton with our Broads Rescue unit. On route, we were pleased to learn from Humber Coastguard, that the persons in the water, with assistance from the Broads Authority, had been pulled to safety and that representatives from the boatyard were also on scene and had full control of the situation.

With no life in danger and everyone being safe and well both Hemsby and the Coastguard teams were stood down. We returned to base and were back on service by 1700.

Thanks to all the crew who attended the incident and to the crew members who remained at the station to help with the clean down and preparation for the next emergency.

28/07/2020 Team sent to investigate a report of a green object seen between Scare Gap farm and Mautby Marsh Farm.  Mautby Marsh farm was reached from the Acle Straight on the south side of the River Bure, as you can see from the first photo that the river is not accessible, so we relocated farther east to Scare Gap Moorings.  Here we found our "object" which turned out to be a channel marker on a bend.  Broads Authority sent a ranger to check it out, and the conclusion was that it is an inflatable marker that had been incorrectly anchored.  #103/20

Hemsby Broads Rescue was paged this evening by Humber Coastguard to assist three persons onboard a small rowing boat on Hickling Broad, who due to the weather and water conditions were struggling to make headway and were being taken by the wind and current. Hemsby Broads Rescue launched from Cess Road Martham and quickly found the casualty vessel.

The occupants were wet and tired from their efforts, but otherwise in reasonably good spirits. Hemsby Boards Rescue came alongside and set up a springer to secure the casualty craft alongside and then towed the boat with the casualties alongside to a safe mooring on Hickling Broad. The occupants were met by Bacton Coastguard and Hemsby Broads Rescue recovered the rescue boat and returned to station.  

Our thanks to Bacton and Winterton Coastguard teams for their support and assistance, and to the crew who remained at station and helped us with the clean down.  It is worth noting that the persons onboard the casualty vessel took all the correct actions to both ensure their safety and make our job that much easier, by using their mud weights and keeping calm.

Hemsby Broads Rescue was paged this afternoon, the 26th August 2020, to assist a male who had fallen from his pleasure cruiser and entered the water at Womack Island on the Norfolk Broads. As a result of the fall, he sustained injuries to his face and torso.

On arrival at the vessel and with the assistance of a Broads Authority Ranger and Bacton Coastguard team, the casualty was back on board and receiving immediate aid.

Although a little shaken the injuries were not thought to be serious. With his family being looked after by members of the coastguard team, the Hemsby crew evacuated the casualty by rescue boat to the waiting ambulance for further treatment.

Hemsby Broads Rescue then returned to base to washdown and prepare for our usual Wednesday night training. Also, on scene with Bacton Coastguard were Winterton Coastguard team. Out thanks to all those involved and the crew who remained on station at Hemsby to assist with the clean down.

Hemsby Broads Rescue was paged this morning to assist a man in his sixties, who had sustained a serious head wound at Ludham Bridge. Luckily his wife was at hand and despite the severity of the injury was able to take control of their cruiser and safely moor it, and then raise the alarm. Witnesses to the incident praised her skill at bringing the boat alongside in such stressful circumstances.

Hemsby Broads Rescue was first on scene and was able to apply a pressure dressing to the injury to help reduce the flow of blood and prepare the casualty for the medics who were on route.

Gorleston Coastguard arrived and helped to manoeuvre the vessel into a position that would allow for the simplest evacuation of the casualty. On arrival of the Ambulance service, the casualty was safely moved to the Ambulance for further treatment and then transported to the James Paget Hospital.

Our thanks to Gorleston Coastguard team and the medical team for their assured assistance. Once the casualty was handed over to the ambulance crew Hemsby Broads Rescue was stood down to return to base and prepare for the next call for assistance.
