Even when we are quiet as a team the work goes on. The vehicles and their equipment need regular checks, maintenance and repairs. Today we had a winch failure to sort. A full strip and rebuild got things going again. Volunteers working behind the scenes to ensure the team keeps rolling, and are ready when needed!
Last night the teams mechanic pixies were out repairing and maintaining the teams two Land Rovers in the comfortable surroundings of the Fire Station garage.
Even when the team members are not out training or rescuing there is still plenty to do to keep everything in readiness for the next outing.
Unfortunately the vehicles do not repair themselves and as team members are working during the day in their main jobs, some midnight oil has to be burnt!
There is so much work done behind the scenes to enable the team to turnout and perform when called for.
