RAB provides military training for flood defence inspections
Mar 29, 2016

RAB Consultants trained 34 military personnel in flood asset visual inspection in February 2016 to aid the recovery effort after the floods of this winter.

Military support was requested by the Environment Agency in order to complete the annual flood asset inspection programme, after flood defences across England were damaged by Storms Desmond, Eva and Frank.

Volunteers from the Army, Navy and RAF rapidly inspected Environment Agency flood assets in accordance with the national Condition Assessment Manual and identified essential repairs to the nation’s flood defences.
