North Wales Fire Service: 240 calls during and after the severe weather.
North Wales Fire and Rescue Service reports that it received over 240 calls to its control room between 2pm yesterday (12 February) and 7am this morning.
Normally it would have expected to have dealt with a fraction of this number.
Of the calls received, resources were deployed to 70 incidents and information from a further 62 of the calls was transferred to other agencies for attention.
The types of incidents attended included over turned lorries, road traffic collisions, flooding and numerous dangerous structures around North Wales, as well as wind turbine fires on Anglesey.
Kevin Roberts, Senior Operations Manager, said:
“We are grateful to the public for heeding the advice of all the agencies in the coordinated multi agency response which involved the emergency services, local authorities and partners.
“Although the severe weather has subsided this morning we would advise that people continue to take extra as there remain disruptions to travel – please check ahead before setting off.”
