Have you ever watched "999: What's Your Emergency?" on the TV? Or "Highland Emergency"? "Helicopter Heroes"? All these shows often feature the work of mountain rescue teams. We can give the opportunity to be a participant, not just a spectator.
Ever wondered what it would be like carried around on a stretcher? Be lowered down a rock face? This day will provide that opportunity. A team building exercise with a difference! You and your team will be given the task of finding your casualty, then recovering them in the stretcher. As part of this recovery you will be required to lower the stretcher and its 'body' down a cliff face. There will be opportunities for a number of the group to experience the sensation of trusting your team mates when acting as the 'body'. Alternatively your group uses the "search" as a method of consolidating "Teamwork in Action". Planning, preparation, leadership, organisation skill, etc.
Schools and Youth groups
Why not combine this exciting activity with mountain biking, archery, team building & problem solving exercises, abseiling or gorge walking to make an Adventure Day?
