The Mud Rescue equipment is used to recover people and animals from the mud or sinking sand that lies along our coastline. A typical rescue involves using an inflatable raft to support the sinking casualty whilst the crew then use either water or air to soften the mud, allowing casualty to be pulled to the safety of the platform.

 

The raft can also be used for crossing rivers and gullies in the local area.
