MRI hosted the 2023 Party Leader course in Tollymore National Outdoor Centre and the Mourne Mountains. MR team members from all over Ireland and Northern Ireland, and also some from the UK were in attendance providing over 330 years of collective experience in mountain rescue.
The purpose of the Party Leader course is to provide a standardised training programme for party leaders from all MRI mountain rescue teams who are trained to take charge of groups of MR personnel during callouts. The training is intense but packed full of both classroom and scenario-based learning.
The course covers aspects including the characteristics and skills of a good party leader, the role of a party leader during a callout, managing casualty care and triage, risk management, rescuer welfare and more.
A big thank you to the training faculty from Dublin-Wicklow Mountain Rescue Team, Calder Valley Search & Rescue Team and PSNI Mountain Rescue Team for all their hard work and well done to all the attendees.
