Issue 51 Mountain Rescue Winter 2015
Lyle Brotherton looked at how navigation needs change when winter is warm and wet rather than heavy snow and we ran a BMC technical report on a failed rigging rope. Neil Woodhead and Judy Whiteside reported that the benevolent fund was ‘in business at last’ with its first claim and that the processes and procedures appeared to have stood the test. Paul Amos and Dr Jacqui Wilmhurst discussed the way decisions are made in a risk and time-critical situation and the need to learn from experience. Plus news and views from round the regions and beyond.
