20 day search and rescue course
This intensive course was first designed to
provide training for fire, police and community volunteer units. This programme
was intended to form an integrated part of the government's strategy to make
disaster - response management proactive rather than reactive. To date
twenty-two courses have been run. However, the skills learned on the course are
of great use to anyone in their everyday life. Trainees are put under intense
pressure and the course culminates in extremely testing night exercise. This
ensures that participants future response to stressful situations - whether
found at home, work, or during a true emergency - will be more measured, and
more likely to be the correct course of action.
