Sunday 27th May 2018’s beautiful weather and rising tide offered great conditions for a very busy training session! The main focus was casualty retrieval, carried out over several different exercises which involved crew acting as casualties and both Bob and Resusci Annie dummies being used.


In fact, there was so much going on that the morning’s training for the PLIRB volunteer crew has been split across a series of posts, so that the images don’t overload the blog page!


The focus was on the types of rescue and casualty retrieval which most commonly happen around the local beach areas – and the first one of these was retrieval of an individual who was uninjured, but cut off by the tide down towards Cliff End, notorious for its disappearing under-cliff beach once the tide turns.

:) Apologies for the hazy quality of some of the photos, it was just so sunny for a change!
