You too could help save lives
What could you do for mountain rescue? Well, if you’re a keen mountaineer, at home in the mountains, and you have a good knowledge of rope work, navigation and a basic understanding of first aid, you could volunteer to join your local team and undertake training in the vital mountain rescue skills required.
But there are any number of other ways you can contribute to a team: helping organise events, offering your skills in PR and marketing, cooking bacon butties during a shout… even washing down team vehicles. Even an hour or two a week makes a difference.
