4×4 Transport for Nurses on Somerset Levels
On Wednesday 5th February, with rain and already severe flooding, many people were being evacuated from their homes on the Somerset Levels. But there were some who could not leave and required care and assistance from the Nursing staff of Somerset Care, who had to get there despite the wind, rain and flooding.
With many roads in the area impassable due to flooding, a 4×4 vehicle was needed to ferry the nurses to the homes of these elderly people. The Bridgwater RRT team were called at 3.30pm, asking if they could provide transport for two nurses.
