Nepal Update 12/05/2015

Today another earthquake of 7.2 - 7.4 magnitude hit Nepal only 17 days after the initial earthquake that killed thousands of people. We are currently monitoring the situation and working with the appropriate organisations to see if we are required to help with any search and rescue assistance.

 

Below is a video of our recent deployment in response to the earthquake that happened on April 25th 2015

 

Statement from Kris Hurley - National Director

The SARAID team that deployed to Nepal arrived home safely yesterday and have now been stood down - with the exception of Josh, one of our engineers who remains in country as part of a joint international team supporting the National Government in carrying out structural assessments on damaged buildings (he will hopefully be home in the next couple of days).

As Team Leader for the deployment and National Director I would like to pass on my thanks on behalf of all the team for all the messages of support and well wishes placed on both Facebook and various other social media sites, I would also like to say a big thank you to all those involved in any form of fundraising/donating whilst we have been away - knowing that we had this much support meant a lot to the team whilst we were away.

I am extremely proud of all the hard work carried out by the team in such a professional manner and we look forward to working again in the near future with our close friends at @Fire Germany. Our thoughts and prayers remain with the people of Nepal especially those that have lost loved ones or friends.

Mr Kris Hurley National Director

Nepal Update 02/05/15

All the team are safe and well. The team have been out all day completing their search of Kapan and Mahankal areas of the city.

This morning the UK Fire Service team have been working with the SARAID team to search a large five storey building that had collapsed. Unfortunately, no survivors were found. After completing the search, the team split into two sections.

One section carried out building inspections for UNICEF and the UN to ascertain whether buildings were safe for use. The other section travelled out to a monastery near Gumba where they carried out an inspection of the buildings for the monks, before returning back to base.
