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.

    Just wondering whether you could include a photo of the Dutch pumps at Dunball chucking out – they look very impressive. I know the PBCC didn’t install them, but may convey an idea of the vast quantity of water you have been helping out with, also there must be some more photos of the lads at work.

    I didn’t realise your RRT teams have 4×4’s – presume these are privately owned. I am amazed at your ingenuity, you seem to be able to turn your hand to anything. I can only hope there’s a team near where I live, kinda makes you feel quite comfortable knowing that there’s a bunch of dedicated volunteers ready to serve the public nearby.

    Wow Steve – you really jumped in the deep end this time! Perhaps you’ll have to provide a Range Rover Autobiography next time for these brave nurses!

  16. Granny says:

    Wow! That depth of water looks scary to me, even for a 4 x 4.
    What a brave thing to do. Well done Bridgwater RRT, and the nurses who never give up on their patients.

    1. ... says:

      I agree

  17. Auntique says:

    Well done – good job the RRT is available so other valuable resources are not taken away from where they are needed for ferry service. What an ironically appropriate name – Bridgewater….
