Happy Richter Scale Day! The Richter Scale was created 1935 by American seismologists Charles F. Richter and Beno Gutenberg, as a way of measuring earthquakes.

This forecasting and monitoring information is fundamental for SARAID and our colleagues.

Some of our volunteers practicing airway management, using a 2 handed C-grip technique and a BVM (bag valve mask) to provide the casualty with oxygen supported ventilations. The 2 handed grip is the most effective way of maintaining a good seal around the patient's face whilst providing adequate ventilations. As you can see it requires 2 rescuers, so it's not always a feasible option, however it's considered the 'gold standard' when ventilating with a BVM and thats what we train to!This technique is combined with bilateral NP's (nasopharyngeal airway) and an OP (oropharyngeal airway) to protect the patient's airway.#medtraining #medicalskills #medicaltraining #medicalteam #rescueteam #training #learning #newskills #bvm #airwaymanagement #airways #ventilation #spearsar #charity #trainingsession #medical ...

#Throwline practice for the team the other day. This skill is crucial in water rescue scenarios but has substantial skill fade when not done regularly. Every marine training session our volunteers practice throwing the bags using three techniques (under, over and side) and from different positions (from the bank, in shallow water and in deep water). In this session they practiced hitting the instructor as they paddled in their kayak😆#watersafety #practicemakesperfect #training #waterrescue #throwbags @yakadventureequipment #Team #charity #searchandrescue #water #river #onthebank #search_and_rescue ...
