This weekend Wiltshire Search and Rescue took part in joint training with Wiltshire Air Ambulance.  The two charities are based alongside each other in Devizes and have had a good working relationship over a number of years.

The training scenario gave an opportunity to practice working together to extract a casualty, using WILSAR’s specialist stretcher and packaging equipment.  It also gave Critical Care Paramedic, Matt a chance to demonstrate some of the features of the new helicopter and to train our volunteers how to safely approach and operate around the aircraft.  Many thanks to the very busy Air Ambulance team for finding the time in between call-outs!”
