Thames Traditional Boat Festival 2016 Event Cover


The Thames Traditional Boat Festival is one of the ERTSAR team’s favourite events of the summer.

We have been providing water safety cover for many years – this time we also provided a medical service too.

It was an action packed three days and the team were busy on and off the water assisting boats and attending to medical emergencies. Attractions at the festival included the Royal Jubilee barge ‘Gloriana’, Battle Of Britain Memorial Flypast, the Veterans Parade and the Illuminated Parade.

This year we had some spectator participation in our rescue demonstration, where members of the public could have a go at ‘throw-bagging and rescuing’ one of our team from the river.

It was also a chance for us to display our new mannequins, dressed in their rescue gear! We are actively recruiting new members at the moment and we had the pleasure of talking to lots of people who were interested in becoming more involved with ERTSAR. We look forward to seeing them at an induction soon.
