15 Cadets and 4 Members of Staff visited the HQ of their local mountain rescue team in Ambleside on Thursday 3rd November where they were given a comprehensive insight into how the team conducts its rescues and operations.
Cadets took the opportunity to try out a stretcher and to attempt to lift some of the essential equipment the team take out and carry to a rescue.
They were shown the operations room and were briefed on the training and operation of the rescue dogs.
The cadets obtained valuable and informative information from the crew and all enjoyed the evening tremendously and thank all the rescue team volunteers who gave up their valuable time to meet and brief the team.
