CVSRT Probationary Members pass final assessment

24 Jan 2017

This weekend saw our current Probationary Members (2016-17) take their final assessment - a non-stop 24hr test of attitude, aptitude and ability – the perfect opportunity for our five ‘probies’ to demonstrate what they have learnt.

CVSRT would like to thank Bowland Pennine Mountain Rescue Team (BPMRT) for their excellent hospitality this weekend and assistance with putting the probies through their paces. During their assessment in Gisburn Forest Bike Trail, the teams came across an injured biker who required assistance for a shoulder injury, and later they were called to another incident on the trails to assist North West Ambulance Service and North West Air Ambulance.
