While the emergency crews were at work the local Plymouth Brethren Rapid Relief Team set up to  provided refreshments to the crews which was a welcome relief in the rain and freezing conditions.

With icy cold wind and rain making work miserable for the firemen, Plymouth Brethren kept the fire fighters spirits up by supplying them with hot food and drinks,

All members of the emergency services expressed thankfulness with one fireman saying “you guys do such a great job! I hope you are able to come next time we are called out.”

    I agree, true spirit of christianity displayed here…why can’t the CC leave them alone.

    Hi, Just like to express my thanks to the PB Rapid Relief Team for attending three calls I have been on where they were exposed to the same sub zero temperatures as us and kept a smile on their face whilst ensuring EVERYONE on the fireground got a hot drink and something to eat.

    The sacrifice these individuals suffer to ensure we are fed and watered is humbling. Best of British. Thank you

      You can now see the East Meon fire as a separate post. The RRT were on site providing hot refreshments from 8.30pm Good Friday through till 3.30pm the following day.

    It was really unbelievable that they were so quickly on site. Coffee, cookies, bacon butties and more for all these brave fire crews and us. Never seen this before. We as a family and our neighbours are very grateful what these members of Plymouth Brethren have done! Prime example of spirit in the community. Many, many thanks!
