This week’s training for the team was split into two groups. Half of the team met at Holming Beam undertaking a radio exercise and the other half of the team were based at Shaugh Prior for a rope session devised by Steve and Alex.
It is al little bit differed now with COVID so to work closely together as we need to do when working on the ropes the members where all wearing a face-mask. After we found a willing casualty (a 100 meter rope bag) we started to setup the site for the rescue of the casualty.
All anchor points were set up so we can safely lower personal and the stretcher, after the safety officer approved the setup the team spring into work.
After 4 members and the stretcher where lowered down safe and casualty loaded the members onto of the cas site get in action to get stretcher party safely on top again.
Thank you to Steve and Alex for organising a great evening and a special thank you to Stu from Devon and Cornwall Police for his time at the start of the evening to go through the Airwave Radio’s that have recently been allocated to the team.
