Exmoor Search and Rescue are assisting the Exmoor 30:30
event on Saturday 13th September. This is an endurance event for
teams carrying 30 pounds over 30 miles in aid of the Royal British Legion. ESRT
will be on site in case of any incidents as the teams of five tackle the rough
course, starting at 4am Saturday morning.
In addition this year the team will be displaying their
technical expertise by holding a 'Meet the team in action' day. The Crag, Swift
water rescue and Cas care sections of Exmoor Search and rescue will be training
near Lanacre bridge, 2 miles west of Withypool. They will be displaying the
setting up of a rope rescue, working in floodwaters and delivering emergency
first aid in awkward settings. There will also be supporters and other team
members on hand to answer questions on the work of the team and how you could get
involved. Please do come and see us, we will be at the Carpark by the bridge
from 10am till 3pm and would love to see you.
