Flood victims cared for by St John Ambulance

Flooding June 2007

St John Ambulance volunteers are on standby for another weekend of severe weather.

Divisions in South and West Yorkshire have been in action since Monday of this week, providing support for the local community in Rotherham and Sheffield. They were also kept on standby whilst there was a risk of the Ulley Reservoir dam breaking.

Two 4x4 vehicles with four crew members and nine ambulances were called out to help with the situation.

Our members are still currently on standby and are fully prepared to provide support for rest centres over the weekend after another severe weather warning was issued for the next few days.
