Firefighter flood training in Spalding next week

A major coastal flood training exercise for Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue is due to take place in Spalding next week.

Crews from across the county will be involved on Tuesday and Wednesday March 19 and 20, with exercises due to be carried out in the Spalding and Skegness areas.

Around Spalding crews will be in attendance in the areas of Burr Lane, Matmore Gate and Westlode Street. 

Group Manager Spencer Creek, said: “This exercise is purely for Fire and Rescue crews and tests the knowledge and expertise of staff in applying national operational guidance.

“We test these scenarios regularly with partner agencies, but it’s also important that we exercise the operational detail as a service.

“Although our crews will be involved in the exercise, we will still have appropriate fire cover across the whole county.”
