The pumps involved played a central role in an exercise carried out two years ago at Hollingworth Lake in Rochdale - codenamed Exercise Triton II
Exercise Triton II
was the biggest live exercise ever held in the Greater Manchester region on Thursday, putting emergency services to the test, with police, firefighters and paramedics working with 33 'partner agencies' including local councils and military search and rescue teams.
The maintenance platoon maintained vehicle dispatch; repaired and recovered human intelligence collection team vehicles, multifunctional team systems, and Triton II
systems; and trained on critical warfighting tasks.
