Rescue Skills Day - 8th April

Thu Mar 09, 2017 10:06 am

Whilst incidents are rare, and we do everything we can to avoid needing it, every so often a situation arises and through regular skills days we aim to equip everyone with the required knowledge to overcome these challenges.

These skills are divided up into three categories:
RS1 - Self Rescue
RS2 - Rescue of others
RS3 - Advanced Rescue Techniques

On Saturday the 8th of April, we will be running a Rescue Skills 1 training day. Come along to lean some skills, practice what you already know, or to pass on your own experience to the next generation. If we're lucky there may even be a sausage sizzle going on.

When: Saturday 8th April - 10am

Where: Nursery Cliffs, Kangaroo Point (same place we do Basic Skills Day)

What:
Rescue Skills 1 Day

The RS1 component of the rescue skills focuses on useful techniques such as ascending a rope, passing a knot or changing ropes on abseil, and tying off a belay. All extremely useful skills to have as a seconder.

Provided there are enough people turning up to help out, I may also run some RS2 scenarios. RS2 builds on some of the skills in RS1, progressing to escaping a belay completely, and also introducing Z-hauls, and abseiling with a patient. These are more useful skills to have if you're looking at becoming a leader within the club.

Post below if you can make it so I know what we need to cater for
