Dublin-Wicklow Mountain Rescue Team added 6 new photos.
DWMRT were based at the Glencree Centre for Peace and Reconciliation for a major training exercise this weekend.
The weekend started with some first aid training on Friday night. Saturday saw team members participating in a rescue exercise on Kippure involving a search for four walkers. The scenario tested the team's skills in the areas of search, first aid, patient packaging and evacuation, and steep-ground work. Sunday was used to build on the previous day's exercise, practising and reinforcing core mountain rescue skills.
We'd like to thank the wonderful staff at the Glencree Centre for looking after us all weekend. ... See MoreSee Less
Mayo Mountain Rescue at Mweelrea.
The team responded to a call at 2205 from the Westport Garda Station regarding three walkers lost on Mweelrea. The team drove out and set up base at the Delphi Resort. A first response team headed in towards the walkers who had been located via the SARLOC© mobile phone system with the assistance of Malin Head Coast Guard. The walkers were found and assisted off the hill.
Thanks to all involved. ... See MoreSee Less
A massive thanks to Downpatrick Lions who presented us with a cheque for £1000 this evening. The presentation took place at the clubs monthly meeting to which the team had been invited to give a talk. The money was raised from a range of activities including a recent street collection and will underpin the ongoing work of the team. The Lions have supported the team over many years and we're ever grateful for their continued efforts and generosity. Pictured with members of the Downpatrick Lions are team members Joan and Martin. ... See MoreSee Less
