West Yorkshire Fire and Rescue crews are helping with flood relief work

West Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service crews remained deployed in the south helping with the ongoing flooding crisis.

Working as part of what the Chief Fire Officers Associations President, Paul Fuller, has referred to as arguably the largest deployment of fire and rescue service resources since the war, crews remain deployed in Somerset, Berkshire and Surrey.

Crews are being provided with accommodation and meals by the Fire and Rescue Services that have requested support.

Meanwhile, in West Yorkshire, regular levels of emergency cover is in place.

Assistant Chief Officer Dave Walton said “We are being provided with regular updates by both the national flood co-ordination team and our staff who are deployed on the ground.

“To be part of such a massive relief effort is very rewarding for those involved and I would like to thank them on behalf of the people that they are assisting.

“We should also recognise that the rest of West Yorkshire Fire & Rescue Service is working in support of this deployment.”
