European Maritime Day – ‘Operation Manta’

This morning it was over to the Cruise Liner Terminal in Liverpool to watch the Merseyside Fire and Rescue Service and other emergency services, including RAF Valley Sea King Helicopter carry out ‘Operation Manta’.   The operation simulated a fire on board the Mersey Ferry ‘Snowdrop’ and once called in, all the emergency services sprang into action, launches, jet skis, water canon, helicopter, the works.    What a great performance, and if there ever is a need for a response, it could not be better than from  from MF&RS.   Well done to all the services who took part.
