Winter Water Training for MVS Rushden


The Rushden Unit have been practicing their water resilience drills at the Northampton White Water Centre on the River Nene in near-freezing temperatures.

Most of the equipment and protective clothing owned by the Unit was purchased through their successful history of three annual Department for Transport Inshore Lifeboat Award bids.

The Rushden Unit specialises in supporting the local authority and the Northamptonshire Fire and Rescue Service Water Rescue Teams.
