    Stay safe Ė donít enter streams and water

    Posted on Thursday 13th July 2017

    A fresh warning has come for people to not put themselves at risk by entering streams or water.

    Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service is giving the warning following a call on Thursday, July 6, to rescue a dog from a stream.

    Two crews from Ramsbottom and Whitefield along with the water incident unit from Heywood rescued the dog from a culvert on Palatine Drive, Bury.

    Station Manager Daniel Marshall said: “Please never enter streams, open water or anywhere that doesn’t have a lifeguard present.

    “You can never be certain of the depth of the water, it is a lot colder than you expect and you can easily be swept away.”

    Councillor David Acton, Chair of the Fire Committee, said: “Our firefighters work extremely hard to keep everyone in Greater Manchester safe and this incident was no different.

    “Water can be extremely dangerous, with culverts giving risk of a build-up of gases, so please never enter them. Our crews are highly trained to enter dangerous situations like this one so please leave it to the experts.”

    Crews used specialist buoyancy and other tools to rescue it and were on the scene for approximately 50 minutes.

    Daniel added: “Never follow your animal into water, as they will usually be able to find their own way out.

    “If you do see someone struggling in water, call 999 and wait for our arrival so we can use our specialist equipment to rescue them.”

  • Lifesaving service calls for the North West to help give its new crew a Head Start

    Lifesaving service calls for the North West to help give its new crew a Head Start

    Posted on Thursday 13th July 2017

    The countdown is on until the one pound coin ceases to be legal tender with just 100 days to go but the North West Air Ambulance Charity is calling for you to donate any you have left to help its heroes.

    The North West Air Ambulance Charity’s crew requires specially-adapted helmets to carry out lifesaving missions across the region, which not only provides vital protection but also its in-built communication equipment enables them to get to patients as quickly as possible. The charity’s ‘Head Start’ campaign is calling on supporters to donate their old pound coins to the charity to help purchase head gear for its latest intake of paramedics.

    Since 1999, the charity has flown more than 20,000 missions across the region, with its doctors and paramedic on board providing rapid treatment and hospital transfers to people in their time in need.

    Andrew Duncan HEMS (Helicopter Emergency Medical Service) Paramedic and Team Leader at the North West Air Ambulance Charity, said: “Soon the old pound coin will become worthless but until then, they can still be heroes! With the world of technology changing at such a fast pace, it is crucial that we stay ahead of the curve and ensure we can provide a top-quality service. The public’s support will help us invest in this vital equipment and ultimately allow us to further enhance our pre-hospital care so we can be there for tomorrow – not just today.”

    If you haven’t donated yet, now’s your chance – the campaign will end on 15th September. To order the North West Air Ambulance Charity Head Start coin card today and help make a lifesaving difference, visitwww.nwaa.net/headstart<http://www.nwaa.net/headstart>. Read more
