    Glossop Mountain Rescue Team, July 07, 2019 - Two out of last three callouts have required assistance from Coastguard Rescue’s 12.5 tonne S-92 helicopter.

    To make sure that team members, and the casualty, experience the safest conditions possible we need to train yearly with Coastguard Rescue. Today was our yearly training.

    I’m not going to pretend that we don’t enjoy this kind of training because we do, but operating underneath 12.5 tonnes of downdraft can be quite daunting if you’ve never experienced it.

    Today we familiarised ourselves with the outside and inside of the aircraft; embarking and disembarking procedures and high-lining skills(where tension is kept on a stretcher as is is winched, to stop it spinning).

    A grand day topping up key skills.
