TRAINING on the Horseshoe Pass
What a lovely evening for training up by the Horseshoe Pass last night. We looked at area searches and hasty searches. Then a small scenario with a “Fell Runner” with a medical problem that needed urgent evacuation. Finally some training in new methods for single rope working to protect a stretcher on a low angle slope.
Our Ruth Lee Ltd dummies got a night out.
One of them also got an unexpected visitor!
On this occasion a gentleman on his holidays from Germany found one of the casualty dummies which had a card with a set of signs and symptoms on it.
Dirk read the card and sent in a perfect diagnosis and a good rescue plan! Well done!!! If you move to NE Wales we’d offer you a role in the team!
The message he sent to us is below.
“I think he has a heart problem.
Bit my english seemed to be worser than I thought.
So I would give him some kind of heart massage if he would not react, hear, and slowly breath.
Hope that helps you and him.
Better to send a rescue team out.
