Message From The Rescue Team Leader

Much to my surprise I found myself volunteering for the post of BEC rescue team leader at the AGM.

My remit as far as I can gather is to organise at least two practice rescues during the year.  So that BEC members have at least a vague idea of what's going on when/if they are called out to help with a real rescue. It would seem to make sense, at least to me, that since as a club we are responsible for St. Cuthbert’s we should hold one practice rescue there.

The system that I intend to operate will be to have "PRACTICE RESCUE WEEKENDS". The Saturday will be for theory and familiarisation with equipment.  On Sunday after an evening in the Hunters a realistic, i.e. with a raging hangover, underground practical session will be followed by a discussion over a pint or eight.

So note these dates for your diary ............

JANUARY……………27th & 28th.

JUNE…………..………29th & 30th.

This is aimed to be as much social as educational and it would be good to see some of the newer members as well as the usual crowd.
