FIVE fire crews took part in an exercise at Defence Munitions Gosport depot today.

The crews from Gosport, Fareham and Portchester stations descended on the depot to deal with a planned simulation of an overturned contractor’s van,

The routine exercise allowed firefighters to acquaint themselves with the site in case of a real emergency.

Tim Spencer-Peet, Gosport fire station commander, said: ‘It was an exercise to ensure that their standing operating procedures run concurrently with ours, so that everyone understands their role.’
