Seething Fire and Rescue
Seething Airfield has a well equipped fire and resue unit trained in fire fighting, rescue and first aid to CAA standards. They are on call to respond to emergencies around the airfield on flight training days and on other specified events such as air displays and fly ins.
The service is provided by a dedicated group made up of current and former firefighters as well as members of the Flying Club. Don't be alarmed if you notice plumes of black smoke across the airfield - It will be the fire crews carrying out another drill. Drills, both frequent and necessary, are required to maintain a minimum standard as set by the CAA. They test incident response times - every second counts when a plane is on fire!. Drills also perfect rescue techniques and various scenarios will be placed around the airfield and you may be asked to participate - probably as a casualty.
On Display - Seething Fire and Rescue provides essential support at the Annual Air Show.
Seething RFFS attend an incident following a freak rain storm during the 2013 Chairty Airday. No persons were injured.
