Following a callout yesterday evening to assist Fife Police Division the team was back out on the hill early this morning for our January training day.

The training scenario for the day was a walker who had slipped and fallen off a rocky crag on Benarty hill.

Team members refreshed medical, navigation and technical rescue skills to successfully rescue our mock casualty off the hill.

A great day was had by all.
