Following our review of the team membership June 2020, we would like to remind you that SMWCRT require a minimum participation of attending at least one training session or rescue practice every two years. This is to ensure that the team are current.


We will be offering a variety of opportunities including online training webinars to allow all members to engage in training this year.
