Callouts 2012

Braunton and Tiverton, Devon

A major multi-agency response was initiated due to flooding in many parts of Devon following periods of prolonged and heavy rain.

Exmoor Seach and Rescue Team provided Devon and Cornwall Police with additional resources to aid with the evacuation of homes in the Braunton area of North Devon.  At the same time, teams were also dispatched to Tiverton to monitor the flood levels around Tiverton Hospital, should it have proved necessary to evacuate.  The Team was stood down at 04.30hrs as river levels started to recede.
