Training

In order to maintain high standards it is expected that team members will attend all training.

This is provided free and is held weekly on Wednesday evenings and
on one weekend a month.

Training covers a wide variety of subjects including
Urban Search and Rescue Awareness, first aid, incident
management, radio use and General Rescue (eg
lowering stretchers from buildings, ropes and ladder
work), storm response and flood response.

There is the opportunity for team members to further
develop skills in the areas of rope rescue, pre-hospital
emergency care, and searching for missing people in
suburban and wilderness environments.
