Mountain rescue team load a helicopter

Mountain Rescue call out during your First Aid course?

You don't expect to do real first aid on a training course?

  That is exactly what happened to member of the Tweed Valley Mountain Rescue Team . According to the BBC Scotland they  were on a First Aid refresher course when they were asked to assist a quad biker who had broken their leg. 

  Over the years  Highland First has trained a number of members of Mountain Rescue teams from all over UK and the Lochaber team. 

  Health & Safety Executive recommend that ALL first aiders carry out at least 3 hours of refresher training every year.  Highland First Aid can help with this, on all our courses we also talk about realistic, low cost alternatives you can do ‘in house’ . 

  As an active climber and mountaineer I am extremely grateful for the huge amount of energy and time the UK’s Mountain Rescue teams give. It has been a real pleasure to regularly have them on our 2 day Outdoor Courses, these outdoor courses are run in partnership with Outward Bound Loch Eil, Fort William.
