Vehicle Training...

A small but dedicated band of volunteers came along for vehicle training and benefited from several circuits of the Railway Station car park practicing live carriageway stop procedures as well as the usual power point presentation last night. Learning which buttons did what on the lightbar was the most challenging aspect of a packed day. We certainly confused many of the local youth at their favourite gathering spot with our flashing lights and take flood signs in and out of the vehicle constantly!

Thanks to all who attended

Kind Regards

Lifejacket training session - deploying the lifejacket

Testing our lifejackets...

A great day was had on Saturday testing our lifejackets at the Bradford on Avon Swimming Pool. A Good chance to put this vital new kit through its paces, feel comfortable in the water wearing it as well as practicing our water rescue techniques.

Getting kitted up ready to go in
Many thanks to our volunteer Peter Larkin for running the session in house for us
