Extreme Snowfall

Extreme Snowfall West Perthshire

HART Technical Rope Rescue Unit is part of the Civil Defence (Scotland) emergency response team and responded to calls from the Emergency Services during the adverse weather in February 2010.

Dear Civil Defenders,
Please find attached for your information, a jpg copy of the letter received from Tayside Police Deputy Divisional Commander Mr Martin Fotheringham to Civil Defence Scotland thanking us for our assistance during the adverse weather conditions in Western Division.
I would also like to take this opportunity on behalf of the CDS committee of management to thank everyone who responded and took part in our response to this emergency request.  Although not listed in the letter I would like to thank volunteer Lynn Bell who manned out ‘operations room’ back at Broughty Ferry on the Thursday evening and was part of the response team on Friday evening at Auchterarder Community School.
CDS is fortunate to have such a dedicated core of volunteers prepared to undergo training and to give their time in order to help the lifesaving services.
“Thank you”.
Regards,
