Our readers are aware that we are currently in the process of reviewing our rope access training, which is a direct follow on to the training received on the recent visit by five team members to Lyon Equipment on Saturday 18th April 2015 (Please see website report dated the same)
This afternoon three team members met at our GMFRS Bolton North Community Fire Station garage, and further practiced and reviewed our rope access training.

Again following the usual format, very comprehensive and intense training took place, including a debrief on the methods utilised to raise our SAR Alpine Lite Mountain Rescue Stretcher on our Wednesday evening weekly exercise of 6th May 2015 (Please see website ‘News’ report dated the same)
