On Wednesday night The Archimedes Centre, Wrexham, Bangor University School of Health Sciences, hosted NEWSAR Team Members and Supporters for Basic Life Support training and assessments in line with current Mountain Rescue standards and we also had a more in depth look at respiratory illnesses, injuries and conditions all with the aid of state of the art training manikins.
Thanks to Julie Birrell and Diane Rimmer for providing the training and assessments and to the University for the use of the skills lab. Everyone at NEWSAR who attended had a great night and learnt a lot and certainly came away with food for thought . Thank you once again.

Shortly after the first team members arrived the missing person was located by Police Officers and we stood down. Great result!

A great big NEWSAR “Thank you” to Adventure Climb Rescue for their support to the team. We now have some swanky new Beal rescue ropes that have replaced ones that had reached the end of their service life.
