Emergency exercise hailed as ‘huge success’

An emergency exercise, led by Trust staff, has been hailed as a huge success.

A two vehicle road traffic collision, with four casualties, was simulated outside East Norfolk Sixth Form College, in Gorleston, on Friday (6th May), with the response being led by our staff and support from the Norfolk Fire and Rescue Service and Norfolk Constabulary.

It involved a head-on collision after a driver, who had been texting, swerved into an oncoming car. Students from the college played the part of the casualties.

Mark Little, a Waveney-based duty locality officer, who organised the exercise, said it was a “huge success” with around 300 people watching.

“This was an excellent example to engage people about the dangers of using mobile phones whilst driving and it certainly had an impact on those observing.

“The exercise also demonstrated excellent co-working with the external agencies which were monitored for JESIP compliance.

“My thanks go to all those who gave up their free time, Luke Jones, Clayton Freeman, Gary Palmer, Dominic Rochester-Wade, Kelly Coote, Peter Wigg and David Howard.”
