PBCC Provides Refreshments at Hard Days Night Fire
Thursday 14th February 2013, there was a fire in the 5th floor pent house suite of the Hard Day’s Night Hotel in the centre of Liverpool. The local Plymouth Brethren Christian Church, whose main gospel hall is in Allerton Road, sent in their Rapid Response Team (RRT) to provide a much appreciated refreshment station for the emergency services involved. The team, which is part of national organisation set up by the church to assist emergency services at serious incidents, served hot and cold drinks and food to a steady stream of fire & police workers throughout the evening.
The Emergency Services welcomed the RRT and were grateful for what they were providing saying that the team were a ‘god-send’. One of the fireman commented afterwards that the brethren’s RRT were ‘a lovely team who kept calm and didn’t get in the way’. He said they impressed everyone, and in fact when the fire crews returned to the station the first thing to be mentioned in the debrief was the wonderful team who had provided refreshments throughout the evening!
The fire was dealt with successfully, and even merited a visit from Merseyside’s own pink fire engine during the course of the evening.
