Training in rescue and medical techniques is a key commitment for all our members. We have an annual program of indoor and outdoor sessions designed to keep everyone up to date.
Teamwork is an essential element of all our rescue activities.
The work undertaken by the team is often potentially hazardous and, whilst we have an excellent safety record spanning over 40 years the identification of potential risks and looking at how we might manage them is an important part of our management group’s responsibility. The team has a documented safety policy that is available to all team members.
The three key considerations underpinning our approach to practical risks are:
(a) provision quality rescue equipment, and attention to its care and maintenance;
(b) training of team members in all aspects of rescue work;
(c) regular practical exercises.
