Marine Mammal Medics Training With Assynt Mountain
All of this with safety in mind, the BDMLR medics often have to perform rescues of seals during the winter months, when the weather is poor and the ground under foot becomes wet and slippy, add to this a 25kg seal and a 7kg transportation kennel and the task becomes quite dangerous.
With the new skills they have learned they will now be able to access a situation and set up a safety rope plus pulley system to help with the load.
It was a great morning out and thanks goes out to Jim Sudd and all the members of the Assynt Mountain Rescue Team who together made the morning a success.
