Serve On volunteers are on stand-by to help following the devastating floods in Europe. As ever, our thoughts are with all affected. #floods #flooding #disasterresponse #searchandrescue #community

Really pleased that although we were a little late to the party (signing up) we’re happy to announce that we have a place secured for this years @emergencyukshow outside. Next years reminder already set.🤦🏽‍♂️😎

2 of our teams are confirmed which are @team_saraid and @SERVE_ON, hopefully the #Hattrick with @SPEAR_SAR. The biggest event in our calendar annually.

Awaiting our confirmation from @emergencyukshow that we can have a stand at this years event. It’s a #onestop shop for all your emergency services needs and an excellent event to attend.. hopefully see you there 🤞🏽🤞🏽

We've had a lot of changes happening recently, improving our brand and products, so every once in a while it's good to recollect where Savox comes from.

Awesome seeing professionals getting familiar with our #searchandrescue systems. Thank you @SPEAR_SAR https://twitter.com/SPEAR_SAR/status/1406281725852934144

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 ...

Did you know…??SEARCH and RESCUE (SAR) is the search for and provision of aid to people who are in distress or imminent danger.The general field of search and rescue includes many specialty sub-fields, typically determined by the type of terrain the search is conducted over. These include;- Mountain Rescue- Ground Search and Rescue, including the use of search and rescue dogs- Urban Search and Rescue (USAR)- Combat Search and Rescue on the battlefield - Air-Sea over waterOne of the world's earliest well-documented SAR efforts ensued following the 1656 wreck of the Dutch merchant ship Vergulde Draeck off the west coast of Australia. Survivors sought help, and in response three separate SAR missions were conducted, without success.#searchandrescue #airsearescue #rescue #waterrescue #Defra #USAR #lifeboat #mountainrescue #LowlandRescue #swiftwaterrescue #roperescue #combatsearchandrescue #coastguard #hems #fireandrescue ...
