#Training 
That same evening at 19:30 the team gathered at Baitings Dam for one of our regular weekly training sessions.  This particular session involved packaging and transferring a casualty around a short but very tricky and muddy course.  This tested our ability in planning and problem solving and also utilised many of the skills we often require when moving a casualty on a stretcher.
We continue to attend these regular training sessions, no matter the weather, only postponing for a real callout, to ensure we keep the teams skillset and standards at the highest possible level.
