Our next major rescue practice will be held on the 5th December at Ogof Ffynnon Ddu.  Again, owing to the COVID-19 situation we will meet at 09:30am in the quarry car park and fully maintain social distancing. SWCC headquarters (except limited access to the rescue stores) will be out of bounds.

We are currently planning an intensive training exercise with ample opportunity for everyone to be involved and get underground in as safe a manner as we can achieve, whilst allowing us to practice all aspects of a real cave rescue.

There will be a need for both underground and surface roles and an opportunity to practice a number of techniques that we have highlighted recently in previous training sessions and online. Obviously how we use PPE in an actual rescue situation will be an important training element.  It is also imperative that we think carefully about how we interact with each other safely while above ground.

Could I ask that you reply to my email stating if you WILL or WILL NOT be able to attend to allow me to better plan the day.
