Training counts

Coastguard teams regularly train to maintain their competencies and practice in different locations and conditions

On Sunday afternoon the team headed out to Old Harry Rocks to practise a rope rescue.

A low tide enabled a safe area at the base of the cliff.

The face of the cliff was very loose and slippery to get to the casualty who had slipped down the 90ft cliff

The first technician arrived and treated the casualty requesting further assistance.

Down came a further two team members to assist.

The casualty was placed on the stretcher.

The casualty being lifted back to the top of the cliff.

The team at the top worked hard to carry out several descents and lifts.

It's all about being a volunteer Coastguard, how do you spend your Sunday's?
