Training – Steep Ground

Two recent training sessions in September focused on working on steep ground.

The first session was a refresher on techniques for working on steep ground, including individual team members operating safely and learning to move loaded stretchers up and down a steep incline.

The techniques are simple and involve equipment that all team members can use and which is available on all team vehicles.

The second session was a search exercise with a final scenario that required the team to use skills they had practised the previous week.
