RAYNET groups around the country were activated during the heavy snowfall last weekend.
Cardiff and District RAYNET were called in to assist with the transportation of key personnel, such as community care workers, as well as assisting stranded motorists to reach safety.
Lothian and Fife RAYNET groups provided a communications net for the local 4×4 response group, passing over 800 messages during their 65 hours of continuous operation.
Glasgow and Clyde RAYNET assisted Scotserve, a voluntary medical response group, who were transferring staff to and from the children’s hospital in Glasgow, by giving them updates on local road conditions.
In West Devon, a network was set up on the usual frequency with 12 operators responding and available within 40 minutes.
