Andy Plimmer – CRO training officer
The Cave Rescue Organisation (CRO) is a cave and mountain rescue team run solely by volunteers within the operational area of the Three Peaks region of the Yorkshire Dales. Attending around ninety incidents a year makes the team one of the busiest in the UK. To assist the team in it’s duties a side by side ATV has recently been purchased. Chris Putt from the Off road Consultancy in collaboration with Coniston Hall off road centre has been delivering Lantra training and assessment for the team drivers. Chris has been extremely helpful and instructive and all the candidates have found his style and approach very supportive. Everyone attending for training has learned an enormous amount and has come back full of confidence and praise for the course.
To be able to now take the vehicle out into the dark and wet, on those critical rescues knowing that team members and casualties will be in safe hands is very reassuring.
