Joint Training Session

We and North of Tyne Mountain Rescue Team enjoyed a wonderful joint training session with our Scottish cousins from Border Search and Rescue Unit today, just north of the border ridge near Lamb hill.

We compared, contrasted and familiarised ourselves with the different equipment used by the Scottish and English teams. We then looked at the various ways we can protect a stretcher on a steep slope, including the new DMM Talon, before running an exercise to locate a casualty on a steep slope and utilise the appropriate technique to get them down quickly and safely.
