Thurs 10/03/22 , Hemsby Broads Rescue was paged twice today, once in the late afternoon and again in the early evening. At 1735 we were tasked by Humber Coastguard to assist two persons on a rowing boat near Thorpe St Andrew in Norwich, who were in difficulty. Thankfully they were able to get to safety before our arrival, and so the rescue team were stood down and returned to base.

At 1915 we were paged again, but this time to support the Ambulance & Police with two teenagers requiring assistance in the area of Martham Boat Yard. On arrival at the RV, we were informed that both casualties were being looked after by the medical team. Also on scene with the Hemsby were Bacton and Winterton Coastguard Teams.

Once it was clear that the casualties were in safe hands, Hemsby Broads Rescue was stood down and returned to the station to prepare our equipment for the next emergency call.

Hemsby Broads Rescue was paged this afternoon to reports of a male in the water near Acle. He had fallen from his Canoe and was in difficulty. We are pleased to say we were stood down before leaving the boathouse as the male had been recovered from the water. For us, that is a perfect outcome.

Thurs 17/03/22 Hemsby Broads Rescue was paged by Humber tonight to reports of a male in the water, in his car on the River Yare North of Breydon Water. Initial reports indicated that the individual was unresponsive. Hemsby Broads Rescue launched at Great Yarmouth; despite the shallow draft of our rescue boat, conditions were difficult, and damage was sustained from an underwater obstacle.

After talking with other units, it became clear that our best option was to moor the rescue boat and proceed by road to offer assistance, as the boat couldn't get in close to the casualty location.

As more information became available, it was clear that the casualty had, in fact, jumped into the water to avoid the Police. Once Hemsby was on scene, it was confirmed that the casualty was in Police custody, so Hemsby Broads Rescue was stood down.

Our thanks to all the other services on scene who were instrumental in bringing this incident to a safe and satisfactory conclusion, including the Police, The Transport Police, Network Rail, Winterton and Gorleston Coastguard teams.

Our thanks also to our team, who had a bigger than usual clean-up job to complete back at the Lifeboat station due to the amount of mud collected and damage sustained.

Hemsby Broads Rescue was paged early afternoon yesterday by Humber to reports of a Leisure craft on fire and drifting toward Norwich close to the Waters Edge Public House. It was reported that there were four people on board needing assistance.

Luckily the Broads Authority were close by and able to get on scene promptly and offer assistance. Also attending the incident were Bacton Coastguard teams and the Norfolk Fire Service.

Members of the Fire Service were able to identify a mechanical fault creating smoke, but there was no sign of actual fire or fire damage. Hemsby ensured that the vessel was moored securely and all persons on board were safe and well. Once the Bacton team arrived on scene, Hemsby Broads Rescue was stood down and returned to base to prepare for the next emergency.

There were a busy couple of days for the Hemsby Lifeboat Crew, with two emergency calls spanning two days on the 13th and 14th of April. It started with a call for assistance from the Coastguard at 21:15 to search for a 63-year-old vulnerable female in Cantley. Also involved in the operation were Lowestoft and Gorleston Coastguard teams and the Police and Fire service.

After an extensive search with nothing found, we received the word from the Police that the female had returned home and was safe and well. The Hemsby team headed back to base and washed down in preparation for the next Emergency, closing down at 0340 on the 14th.

At 21:30 on the 14th, we were paged again to reports of a man in the water at Mill Farm Acle; reports suggested he had fallen from his vessel and had been in the water for up to 30 minutes. When Hemsby Broads Rescue arrived on scene, the male had already been pulled from the water. Our initial review of his condition confirmed that he was early-stage hypothermic, and immediate assistance was given.

The Casualty was transferred to the rescue boat and transported to the emergency services RV point. Also on scene were Bacton Coast Guard and the Fire and Ambulance services. The casualty was handed over to the medical team for further assistance while Hemsby transported members of the Fire service from the casualty’s vessel to the RV. We then returned to the boat and transported it under escort to a safe mooring. Once everyone was safe, and off the water, Hemsby Broads Rescue stood down and returned to base to prepare for the next emergency. The crew returned home at around 23:00.

Hemsby Broads Rescue had back-to-back calls for assistance late yesterday afternoon. The first call came in at 14:38 from Humber Coastguard. There were reports of a vessel drifting on the River Ant. Hemsby Broads Rescue located the vessel, which appeared to be abandoned and relocated under tow to a safe mooring at How Hill.

Once stood down from the drifting vessel, Hemsby Broads Rescue were re-tasked to assist a male onboard a vessel with a suspected broken ankle. Once on scene, it was decided that the casualty would be best off moved in situ on his boat rather than moving him to the rescue boat to minimise the risk of aggravating the injury. The Vessel was escorted back to Herbert Woods to the waiting Ambulance and Coastguard crews.

Hemsby Broads Rescue was paged today at 06:00 by Humber coastguard at the request from Gorleston Lifeboat to Breydon water, to reports of 2 stricken vessels run aground and listing. Gorleston ILB couldn’t get in close enough to assist with evacuation so quickly requested us with our flat bottom broads lifeboat. We managed to get alongside and proceeded to evacuate 5 P.O.B 1 six month old baby, a rabbit and 2 dogs. Whilst we were carrying out the evacuation, Gorleston ILB and Everitt Marine  Services held off for us to transfer the P.O.B and pets to their boats for safe transit to Yarmouth Yacht station. The tide was going out so the rescue was time critical. The 2nd vessel was not accessible by boat so Rescue 912 (HM Coastguard Helicopter) was tasked to carry out the evacuation of 10 P.O.B. While this was going on ourselves and Gorleston ILB held off as safety cover, once all P.O.B where lifted to safety we where stood down and returned to station.
A Great Multi agency effort with ourselves, Gorleston Coastguards, ILB and Rescue 912.

Total life’s saved 15
