Welcome to the Team
Recently, after completing a gruelling training programme, the probationary team members finally faced their assessment weekend.
Designed as a test of stamina and aptitude, they spent 24hrs putting the last 15 months of training to the test.
Experienced members of both CVSRT and Dublin-Wicklow Mountain Rescue Team (who came over especially to help) guided the 5 intrepid members through a variety of scenarios involving medical, trauma, rope work and navigation pushing them to their limits.
We are pleased to announce they performed extremely well in what can only be described as ‘testing’ weather conditions!
So from all at CVSRT we’d like to say a huge CONGRATULATIONS to Bob, Rachael, Richard, Sophie & Will, welcome to the team guys and we wish you all the best in your Mountain Rescue career.
