Fire Brigade Extinguish Sea at Ramsgate and other pictures

This is very much a post for those people who can’t get out for a walk easily, taken a bit tongue in cheek as most of us live in houses something that means we are all for the fire brigade doing plenty of practice exercises.

However from a purely spectator point of view it does look pretty funny and has all the hallmarks of boys playing with expensive toys, click here for the rest of the pictures of this event and click here for the rest of yesterdays pictures of Ramsgate


  1. Where will the firemen practice if this TDC asset disposal site is sold for redevelopment?

  2. Perhaps they had to top up the sea as it could be deeper now,with the dredging of the harbour.

  3. Oh yes, I remember the drills well. How to make a dam from ladders and a tarpaulin, water relay etc. I think it's a statutory duty to practice this every so often. All very serious stuff, but boys will be boys! I remember doing a similar drill at Ramsgate Harbour when we pumped at a higher pressure just to see one of the smaller members of our crew being lifted off the ground. We actually had him hovering for a while!
