Today, three team members, Steve Fletcher, Martin Banks and Paul Brain travelled to NWAS Ambulance HART Base on Trafford Park to undertake MREWs Media Training Course.
Joining fellow MPSRO (Mid-Pennine Search & Rescue Organisation) team members from Bowland Pennine Mountain Rescue Team, Rossendale & Pendle Mountain Rescue Team, Calder Valley Search & Rescue Team and Holme Valley Mountain Rescue Team, 13 people in all, the course was facilitated by Sally Seed from Stoneleigh Communications, aided by Steve Howe and cameraman Dave Freeborn.
Two scenarios were set up, a radio interview and an interview to camera, with each of the participants able to have a go at each and gain constructive feedback from the facilitators and fellow participants.
The final scenarios involved how to tackle difficult interviews, which three people were coached by a team on what to say.
The team would like to thank Sally, Steve and Dave for the informative training session and NWAS HART for the use of their facilities.
