Responders gathered to spend the day, covering subjects including ‘First On Scene’, Dynamic Risk Assessments, Safety and Preparation, Off-Road and Severe Weather Driving Techniques and Recovery Procedures.
This included practical exercises on winching techniques, hi-lift farm jack use, and off-road driving tasks.
Each responder took away something worthwhile whether it be new skills learned, increased confidence in own ability, or a more efficient and thoughtful approach to a variety of differing problems, situations and scenarios. Many gained a greater awareness and appreciation of the subjects covered which they can apply in practice on future 4×4 Response Duties, aiding our partner organisations.
An enjoyable day was had by all that attended and it was a chance to meet and greet new members and fellow responders from the 4×4 Response South East Wales Team also.
Massive gratitude to our training team for making the event an interesting, informative and rewarding experience. A great foundation training day to build upon, well done all!
