EMERGENCY services rescued a casualty from Langsett Reservoir - in a mock exercise to practise procedures they would follow if anyone fell into the water in real life.
The exercise, organised by Yorkshire Water, centred around an employee falling inside the water in reservoir bell tower. Fire, police and ambulance crews took part.
Andrew Shaw, asset reliability manager at Yorkshire Water, said: “As one of the region’s biggest employers, with dozens of popular operational sites across the region, the health and safety of all of our colleagues and of those people who visit our reservoirs, is hugely important to us.
“This exercise will enable us to identify any current risks at the site, helping us to reduce the possibility of such a scenario occurring for real.”
