The chief fire officer from Lincs Fire and Rescue has flown out to Nepal to help with the rescue effort after the devastating earthquake in Nepal.
Dave Ramscar boarded a plane for Nepal last night (Sunday 26th April) at 9pm. He will be part of a team of 67 from the UK’s International Search and Rescue team, and he is the only one from Lincolnshire at this stage.
Other members of the team are from London, Leicestershire and West Midlands and Dave will be leading the team.
There have been a number of aftershocks in Nepal, including one at 6.7, which will make the rescue efforts very challenging.
