Sand Hole Collapse Training

Tonight's training took place on Swanage Beach with the scenario of a person trapped in a sand hole.

There are various emergency actions and a controlled system for rescuers to dig someone out should they get trapped.

The exercise brought a crowd and some strange looks from the public walking past

The team found it was actually hard work and quite strenuous.

Quite a lot of sand was moved not once but actually twice as the hole is made larger.

Hang on - we started with 10 Coastguards!

Of course having dug a deep hole - we had to fill it again !
