Today’s training exercise was a success, with 100 people from 16 different agencies and departments all coming together to search for a missing person, treat three exercise casualties and undertake a scenario that turned out to be a crime scene.
Large exercises are never easy, but being able to train and work together led to lots of positive feedback.
Thanks to colleagues from the agencies that joined us:
Calder Valley Search & Rescue Team
Holme Valley Mountain Rescue Team
Oldham Mountain Rescue Team
Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service (GMFRS)
Exmoor Search & Rescue Team
Rossendale & Pendle Mountain Rescue Team
Thanks to our Support Group for the excellent catering and to Rivington Hall Barn, United Utilities and Rivington Heritage Trust for enabling training to take place.
