To replace a small number of items lost on exercise and incident, and sadly some items lost through theft, the team today received an order of 10 new high-viz rucksack covers and 10 new high-viz vests, at a total cost of £393.63p, from Aguille Alpine Equipment (Staveley, Kendal). The team already has large number of these items, each personally issued to team members and this order forms an attrition replacement stock.
We are grateful to Aguille Alpine for their continued support of the team and the excellence of their products (of which the team has many). With thanks to Aguille we are currently field testing their trauma sack design, with the aim to replace our large number of small first aid sacks and other casualty care items, with 5 trauma sacks.
