Hampshire hospital 'on fire'

  • Comment

Staff at Basingstoke and North Hampshire Hospital were put to the test last week during a fire and evacuation exercise.

Five fire engines attended the hospital on Tuesday evening as part of the exercise, which replicated an electrical fire affecting maternity, child health, cardiology and gynaecology wards.

Fire teams using breathing apparatus needed to successfully locate and rescue “casualties” from a ward in simulated near zero visibility.
