August’s training took the form of a number of workshops on rigging, abseiling and first aid, in our base and on the crags just behind.
The team did joint training with the Scottish Cave Rescue Organisation on 7 July 2019, visiting the Cave of the Liar in Applecross. We exchanged know-how on rigging techniques and got to know some of the systems used by the SCRO.
The team’s first training with the new Agusta Westland 189, call-sign Rescue 151, was held at Torridon on 27 April 2019. The training included familiarisation with the new helicopter, winching and hi-lines.
