Crashed Aircraft Training on Wednesday 11/1/12
This week our Wednesday night training will cover the specific hazards and requirements associated with dealing with an aircraft crash.
There are many hazards to take into account, such as fire and explosion, physical danger from parts of the aircraft and increasingly aircraft contain exotic materials that can be hazardous to health.
We have a guest speaker who is knowledgeable in this technical area.
I’m sure it will be a fascinating and useful evening.
This is one of the areas of our training where we plan for the worst and hope we never have to use the skills for real.

Update 12/1/12 : Due to a call out on Wednesday evening (see Call out 4/12 – Injured person – Colwyn Bay area) our planned training was abandoned and will be rescheduled for a later date.
