Training

Saturday, 14 March 2020
#TRAINING
 
On Saturday 7th March Calder Valley Search & Rescue Team (CVSRT) hosted ‘ROLE’ (Recognition of Life Extinct) regional training, a nationally recognised Advanced Casualty Care course.
 
The course was instigated, organised and delivered by one of our team doctors who was assisted by two of our team paramedics along with another doctor from Bowland Pennine Mountain Rescue Team.
 
In support of the training A senior Crime Scene Officer from West Yorkshire Police (WYP) delivered an informative lecture and helped mentor the delegates during the various scenarios. 
 
In total, sixteen Mountain Rescue England & Wales (MREW) team members attended the course both from CVSRT and our neighbouring teams Scarborough and Ryedale Mountain Rescue Team, Cleveland Mountain Rescue Team, Holme Valley Mountain Rescue Team, Bowland Pennine Mountain Rescue Team (BPMRT), Bolton Mountain Rescue Team and Cave Rescue Organisation.  
 
This additional certified skill is something each attending team will be able to utilise when supporting the statutory emergency services and members of the public in times of distress, and is a course we will look to deliver again in the future.
A huge thank you to everyone who travelled to our base in Mytholmroyd to deliver, support and attend the training session.
