The largest  incident  that we assisted  with  took place  in  Gloucestershire,  along with most of the UK it received an abnormal amount of rain fall causing one of the worst floods that the county had seen for many years.  Thruxton fire and rescue service was tasked with providing fresh drinking water to the residents of the county with its water carrying Vehicles.  Thruxton Fire and Rescue Service were also tasked with supplying additional water carrying vehicles for the incident which was achieved. 


Thruxton Fire and Rescue Service worked closely with Severn Trent water and the military to ensure residents received fresh drinking water and achieved this task.


Thruxton  Fire and Rescue Service not only maintains a Fire Station at one of the busiest private Airfields in the south  we also have a resilience package and work with a major local Authority to provide resilience cover.  We also have supplied the Film and TV industry with protection for over 15 years.
