New UKFRS water rescue guidance

New UKFRS water rescue guidance

The UK fire and rescue service National Operational Guidance (NOG) programme has issued updated guidance on water rescue and flooding.

Multi-agency working features prominently, including ambulance services and especially Hazardous Area Response Teams (HART) who have water rescue capabilities.

A key addition to this edition is a new tri-service model for survivability.

The guidance can be found on the NOG website:
