Sunday 5th August.  15.30  Team returning from the Caister Lifeboat Day, diverted to assist CGOC Humber with some extra eyes on at Breydon Water.  Reports that no less than three hire cruisers had grounded on the mud by or in the vicinity of post 11.  Broads Authority launch "Spirit of Breydon" was soon on scene and able to pull them clear.  The Rangers then escorted the craft across Breydon westbound towards Burgh Castle.  #090/18

Hemsby Lifeboat were paged by HMCG for the third time in less than 2 days last-night to reports of a broken down cruiser somewhere between Horning Hall and The Ferry Inn. The lifeboat was launched at the Horning Sailing Club and proceeded to search for the vessel. Our crew were unable to locate the vessel, once the search was complete news come through from the first informant that the hire company had been out to provide a tow back to their yard in Potter Heigham. Also in attedance were Winterton CRT, EAAST & NFRS.

Why are we suddenly getting Fire Service, 1 & sometimes 2 Coastguards teams and Lifeboats being mobilised to simple medical incidents that theAmbulance Service has managed by themselves in the past?

Due to severe government budget cuts, all emergency services are struggling to meet demand. Some Fire services throughout the country are now trialling EMR. ( Emergency Medical Response ) If an ambulance may not meet the required response for whatever reason, the Fire Service may be asked to respond to provide assisstance until the ambulance service arrive. If two fire appliances arrive you have the advantage of at least eight personnel to provide help which can only be of benefit. It obviously looks like overkill but they can only respond to the information passed from the original caller, which can be wide, varied and sometimes wholly inacurate. Once the scene has been assessed, its much easier to send appliances back, as opposed to arriving with insufficient personnel to deal with the incident

Further to what hedgehog says it has been noted in Norfolk that many retained crew have had little time for their "day job" recently due to the number of countryside call outs and in the long term this could lead to a recruitment & retention problem especially  as the number of full time crews is diminishing?

Why are people calling the emergency services for a breakdown when they are not in any immediate danger ?  Hardly a major problem between Horning Hall and The Ferry!

Because people will call 999 for a broken fingernail!

Whatever happens now, I'm blaming it on Brexit. Everyone else is!
