SARA were among those who took part in a three-day training exercise at Lydney.
The location of the town near the Severn estuary and the River Lyd makes it flood risk area, and an ideal location for the inter-agency exercise.
SARA joined police, fire, ambulance and other volunteer groups at the end of March for the three day flood response exercise.
Our teams worked alongside a number of other agencies including:
- Gloucestershire Police
- Maritime and Coastguard Agency
- Gloucestershire Fire and Rescue Service
- Great Western Ambulance Service
