News : Crew pass BTACC course

On November 26th, 27th and 28th, eight lifeboat crew members undertook a Basic Trauma And Critical Care course (BTACC). 

The course was held at Ainsdale Discovery Centre and was run in conjunction with Cheshire Search & Rescue and Staffordshire Search & Rescue. The crew completed classroom based learning followed by outdoor practical sessions through out the three day course. These practical scenarios involved "real" casualties with realistic trauma injuries and symptoms. On several occasions, passers-by were concerned about the reality of the acting.

We would like to send a big thank you to the team from Cheshire who instructed the course and acted as casusaltities in temperatures down to minus 10 celsius.
