Update: A few pics attached from recent team activities,  including training sessions at Ballaghbeama Gap and the indoor climbing wall refreshing lowering and hauling techniques and general rope management. Some of our hardier bucks volunteered to clear the approach track and landing zone at Ard na Locha in recent weeks, and we also hosted some local scout groups at the rescue station. The fleeting cold weather conditions also gave us a chance to practice some winter navigation and personal climbing skills ahead of an upcoming training trip to Scotland. Though it has been a relatively quiet period on the call-out front, the team is keeping sharp and as always is ready to respond to any incidents on the hills and mountains of the Southwest. Better go now, theres a fierce racket outside, some fella called Dennis trying to get in....

Congratulations to the 35 wonderful people who completed hill party leader training last weekend! Hill party leaders are a vital part of the command structure during a mountain rescue operation. Our newest party leaders had an intensive weekend of classroom and outdoor learning, and they return to their teams to help make the hills a safer place.

Callout 07.02.20;

At 0037hrs, the team received a request to assist a missing hillwalker. The adult female had been walking on Slieve Donard but failed to return as expected and friends raised the alarm. The team responded and carried out extensive searches of the walkers route from Donard Park to the summit of Slieve Donard. Given the context of the request and factors including the prevailing conditions, the team requested the assistance of a range of additional resources. At 0746, as the team were regrouping, the walker turned up safe and well outside the search area. Thanks to those that assisted including the PSNI, PSNI Air Support, Search & Rescue Dogs Assoc., HM Coastguard, ARCC, PSNI Search & Rescue, Irish Coastguard, Rescue 116 and those on standby including Skywatch and North West MRT. 16 MMRT members responded and the team stood down at 0800hrs.

A great effort by all involved, your friends at Strand Bikers are proud to be associated with such a wonderful bunch of courageous people. Thank you for the service you provide to our community 👏

Hope the lady is well and recovering. A lot of resources went into the search

We were in the Mournes yesterday and bumped into the PSNI Search & Rescue Team on a training exercise and exchanged a bit of banter with them getting paid by the tax-payer to enjoy the Mournes! Great work guys and all the other teams involved. It’s great to know you are there for us if needed!

Good work everyone Youse had a lot of resources on hand Glad lady is ok 👏

Saw the lights on the mountain early this morning. Think we all under estimate the service provided voluntarily.

Good job folks. And everyone safe and well. Jobs a goodun

Cracking job. Thanks for watching our backs when we’re out and about.

I hope the lady realises the resources used to locate her

Well done, once again, thanks everyone you're amazing.

To everyone involved ... I take my hat off to you all ... magnificent work. We depend on you all so much 🙏🙏

Did she not have a phone on her? The amount of resources used when it appears she was safe and well!

So reassuring to know you go that extra mile

Fantastic work x

Always there to help,much appreciated, hopefully never needed for me!!!

Great work & great news

Brilliant work as always.

Well done everyone . 🍷

Gordon Wallace This could have been you! This is why you notify someone when you go for a 'dander' up the mountain.

Good work guys 😁

Tonight the team were out training. We braved the cold weather to perfect our patient packaging and stretchering technique with both our stretchers. It was a clear night, we had a bad fall of hail during the session. Stay safe on the roads tonight!!

Tonight team members had the opportunity to visit 1st Magheraculmoney Scout Group in Kesh, (Co. Fermanagh) where we presented a “show & tell” of who we are and what we do. 
More importantly we gave the kids an insight of what to do in the event of an emergency, then a practical demonstration of our casualty care. 

Many thanks again for inviting us along to your den
More images from the group to follow soon...
