A big well done goes to operational crew members, Sophie and Sam for passing the Mountain Rescue Casualty Care exam!
As well as two of our station crew, three other SARA crew passed the exam from our sister stations. Our specialist casualty care crew are able to treat most conditions we may be confronted with, including trauma patients and administering pain relief, but also those suffering from medical conditions such as Asthma, Heart complications, Seizures or Diabetes.
Many months of intensive training by Doctors and Paramedics have provided a range of skills to deal with casualties which we may encounter. Special mention should be made to our team Doctor for her efforts and support for the crew. SARA now has strengthened its ability to respond to remote medical emergencies in support of West Midlands Ambulance Service and other agencies.
