Two new Cas-Carers

Two new Cas-Carers

We have some exciting news…

After months of dedication, Saffa and Matt passed their Mountain Rescue England and Wales Cas-Care award today!

This advanced training allows team members to provide a higher level of pre-hospital care to casualties, including the administration of certain drugs, whether for enhanced pain-relief or to treat medical conditions.

Thanks to all who have helped with the training, and to those who assessed the candidates today. Including specialist colleagues from East Cornwall Search & Rescue Team and Dartmoor Search and Rescue Team – Tavistock (where the assessment was held).

Finally thank you to In Safe Hands Training for the use of their facility for a number of training sessions.
