It was fantastic to get the team back on (and in 🥶) the water yesterday. If there’s flooding in the U.K. this winter, we’re ready to respond!

You have to set goals that are almost out of reach. If you set a goal that is attainable without much work or thought, you’re stuck with something below your true talent and potential. We will own a #FL360 @AgilityTechCorp, it’s a case of when, not if. #teamgoals #usar #volunteer

Current national response alert level is 2 = provincial response capacities plus support from designated provinces currently sufficient for responding to identified worksites. Request for international assistance would only be made at Level 4.

USAR Training (pre Covid). Here some of our team work in a collapsed building rig, in a small void, trying to free a patient from under a concrete slab. The patient is trapped under the slab at the top right of the screen. The floor is on a gradient and the team can't even kneel up in the space. They're using hand tools to lift the slab and drive wedges and blocks underneath it to support it so they can free their patient. Out of shot one of our medics has squeezed up to the top of the void to make an assessment of the patients injuries.Training like this is made as realistic as possible to prepare the team for operating in challenging environments. Here the patients safety as well as that of the team have to be considered at all times!#team #TeamTraining #training #USAR #collapsedstructures #rescue #collapsedbuilding #tunnels #handtools #cribbing #wedges #rescueteam #rescuetraining #patientcare #medicalcare #challengingenvironments #workinginthedark #austeremedicine #disastermedicine #buidlingcollapse #searchandrescue #safety #spearsar #spear #teamwork #charity #volunteers ...

Happy New Year from everyone here at SPEAR Search & Rescue 🥳 Let's hope in 2021 we can get back to normality & to training like this at Bala whitewater Centre in 2019. Until then #staysafe #stayhome & #supportournhs #wecanbeatthis but please be sensible and make the right decisions. We all need to work together. 50000 New cases in a day just isn't acceptable, we all have to play our part.
