New Team members commence their Probationary Membership training tonight

This evening the twelve persons invited to join the team from Sundays membership session had reduced to eleven, with all 11x arriving at our Ladybridge Hall Base / HQ for a 7pm start on the first of their eight Probationary Training period weekly sessions.

Tonight it was the contents of our Land Rover Mountain Rescue Ambulances, and how to use the vehicles NWAS (Manchester) datalink system, followed by a thorough practical session looking at all the various types of stretcher in use by the team.

Thanks to Team members Fred Taylor, Craig Lamb, Mike Marsh and Mark Parry for helping in this task tonight and for passing on their knowledge to our brand new members.

For the eleven present this evening also included a ten minute each interview with long serving and very experienced Team member Mike Marsh, who talked through each Probationers’ comprehensive membership application form, primarily picking up on areas where the eleven need to improve their experience.
