Burnham-On-Sea rescue crews team up for night sea training exercise

Over 20 members of Burnham-On-Sea's marine rescue services teamed up this week to take part in a night-time water rescue exercise.

Burnham Coastguards and BARB Search & Rescue took part in the training exercise on Wednesday evening (January 17th).

The crewmembers waded into the sea next to Burnham-On-Sea Pavilion to complete multiple rescue scenarios.

Throw line techniques, torpedo buoy rescues and three-man huddles were performed as part of a good multi-agency session to test both the teams.
