Recruiting new members
Coniston Mountain Rescue Team is now recruiting new members to join us.
We are looking for people who are willing to give some of their time helping others who need assistance. This could be following an accident on the fell or crags, or whilst on their mountain bike, someone suffering from a medical condition and needs urgent help, walkers could be lost in mist, or simply crag fast. You could find yourself in a position where you are instrumental in saving a person’s life, and if you do, there is no other feeling like it.
If accepted as a probationer, you will receive training in equipment handling, rope work, casualty care, search techniques, 4 x 4 driving and the running of the Base etc.
We ask that you are reasonably fit and able to commit some time to the Team. Apart from call outs and training, you will also be expected to help with fundraising and marshalling various events during the year. We are very much a Team and being able to work as part of one is paramount.
