All the blue light services, including the coastguard, Royal Naval Lifeboat Institution and Ambulance Service, are involved in this event, being co-ordinated by Southend Borough Council.

Volunteers, who will need to be at the pier from 11.30 am until 4.00 pm, will be acting as casualties and will be based at the end of the pier where they will be ‘treated’ or ‘evacuated’ as part of an exercise to assess how the emergency services and the council would manage casualties from the pier should a crisis arise.

If staff or students are interested please contact garycullen@southend.gov.uk who is considering all applications to take part.
