Held quarterly, the GMESLG serves to unite all the statutory emergency Services working in Greater Manchester with the mountain rescue teams which assist them, discussing procedures, incidents, and developments etc.
Each participating organisation takes their turn at hosting the meeting, and this evening we hosted the proceedings at our suitably festive decorated Ladybridge Hall Base / HQ alongside hot mince pies on offer.
The following were present at tonights meeting; NWAS (GMA) Mountain Rescue Liaison Officer, NWAS (GMA) Emergency Operations Centre, NWAS HART, GMP Force Incident Control Room, GMP Missing Person Search Managers, Bolton MRT, Rossendale and Pendle MRT, Kinder MRT, Glossop MRT, Oldham MRT and Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service.
The meeting was preceded by a presentation from GMP on mobile phone cell site ‘tracking,’ which is utilised when required for missing person search enquiries.
The next GMESLG meeting will be in March 2013, hosted by Glossop MRT.
