Emergency Services Ready for Olympics
Emergency Services Olympics Exercise
Emergency services in the Thames Valley have been carrying out tests ahead of Olympic rowing events.
Our emergency services say they're feeling confident ahead of the Olympic rowing event at Eton Dorney.
Thames Valley Police, Berkshire Fire and Rescue and South Central Ambulance have been taking part in an emergency exercise near Eton Dorney.
It's where the Olympics rowing events are taking place this summer.
During the exercise, they faked a fire on a sight-seeing boat on the Thames. All three emergency services were involved, along with around 100 actors, to practise what they'd do if it was a real life event.
They practised rescuing people from inside the boat as well as two people who had 'jumped' overboard.
The event was deemed a success and the services said they now feel confident in the run up to the Olympic Games.
