Topics covered included patient assessment, patient movement in Skeds, Junkins, and a variety of improvised litters, bleeding control, shock management, and spinal care.

We suspect it's hard to love a Rescue Team volunteer.
We are away from home. A lot.
We spend money on batteries, gasoline , backpacks and things that take food away from the table and presents from under the tree.
We leave without notice, disrupting plans and forcing you to suit the timetable of The Missing Person rather than our own.
We wake you up with our late home-comings and early starts.
We put the washing machine through tortures it really shouldn't endure.
We struggle to enjoy the woods without looking for things that nobody should find. And we can't drive across a bridge without checking the riverbanks.
We're often quiet, not sure how to share the memories of things we've seen without ruining your dinner, your evening, your breakfast.
We trod the mud through the hallway when it was dark; sorry.
We spend our weekends rattling tins in supermarkets rather than with the kids, often seeing our team mates more often than our families.
We know that what was written in the press wasn't what happened, but we can't talk about it. In fact, we can't talk about a lot of what we do.
And we struggle to explain why we pay for the privilege of going out in all weathers, at all times of the day, to search for people we've never met, will never know, and who will never know our names. We don't get medals or rank or often even thanks from those involved.
But neither do you, who support us with our passion. We appreciate you, our partners, families and friends who don't question our commitment or roll your eyes when another call comes in. Thank you for everything you do to help us help others.
