Mock Fire in Scarborough Harbour

Mock Fire in Scarborough Harbour

Published by Jon Burke at 3:44pm 12th July 2019. (Updated at 8:50am 14th July 2019)

A small fishing boat will develop engine failure and catch fire in Scarborough’s south bay on Sunday.

Seven casualties will be evacuated from the vessel by the inshore lifeboat.

No, the charity isn’t using a crystal ball, just planning an exercise.

It will involve smoke bombs and realistic looking injuries, simulated by the make-up department of a local college.

Also taking part will be RNLI lifeguards and members of the charity’s Face-to-Face team.

The exercise is scheduled to begin between 7.30am and 8am.

It will last for about two hours.
