Second Saturday Trip

May 11 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

Rescue Practice.

Duration – 3 – 4 hours.

Location – Meet at Upper Pitts at 10:00.

The rescue scenario is that a caver has fallen when climbing the 8 foot waterfall, below the 40 foot pot, in the Swildon’s Upper series.  The casualty is suspected of having a broken ankle.  The practice will cover packaging the casualty into a stretcher and moving the casualty to surface (a mixture of manual carrying and hauling). Please try to attend this training as you will certainly learn something, even if it is only how difficult it is to rescue someone from a cave!

No special equipment is required.  A goodwill fee is payable to the landowner (£1 per person).
