Training

Tonight’s training was at the beautiful National Trust property Quarry Bank Mill in the Styal Estate.

As part of the ongoing training to search around water the teams practiced arguably the most important part of the training which is rescue using poles and throw lines.

Searches around water can be extremely slow as it is imperative that nobody goes near the waters edge until there is somebody placed appropriately downstream who will be ideally located should a rescue be required.

All members regularly practice with a throw line to attain not only pinpoint accuracy but effective bankside placement, an effective brace position and clear instruction.
