Riparian Fire Service ready for any fire emergency



Over the last month a fire boat volunteer group  has been getting together every Monday evening to do basic fire and water training.

The group, known as the St Francis Bay Riparian Association  Fire Service, has run three mock fire scenarios with the local fire department, running exercises within the canals as well as at a home accessible only by the river.

There are  around eight men who are capable of operating the boats, pumps and fire fighting equipment.
