R3SAR Television Debut!

R3SAR made their television debut last month on the Channel 4 documentary series, Britain’s Most Extreme Weather.

Our very own Director of Training, Chris Onions, joined the film crew at TBIWWC back in January, to provide safety cover for the ‘Fast Floods’ episode, which involved a series of flood re-enactments.

The series was presented by C4 weatherman Alex Beresford, and Chris ensured he was fully prepared for a number of scenes, including a vehicle caught in a flood, and being washed away in flood water. As well as managing Alex’s safety, Chris and our standby rescue team also provided the TV crews water safety and rescue cover during the filming

It was a long day but well worth the effort when you see the final result – a great feature on why floods are so dangerous.
