🏔️ Atmospheric Tilly Training After Dark 🔦Under the clear cold and starlit sky, our team ventured into the rugged beauty of Tilly Glen while training this week. We combined ropework and teamwork to safely extract our 'casualty'.Amidst the challenging terrain, the teams skills were put to the test, navigating the winding trails, steep inclines, and slippery steps. Being one of our hotspots, last night's training will without doubt come in handy at some point.Conditions are cold and slippery under foot. Don't forget to wrap up, take a head torch with spare batteries and plan your adventure carefully if you're heading out into the hills this winter.#mountainrescue #teamwork #ropework #tillycoultry #OMRT #ochils #SMR #mountainsafety #training #stirlingshire #Clackmannanshire #anydayanyhouranyweather #workingtogetherScottish Mountain Rescue ...

❌ Callout 18/11/23 ❌Yesterday team members were training with Scottish Cave Rescue Organisation conducting a search and rescue exercise for a missing caver. This allowed both teams to practice working together and Ochils MRT personnel were taken underground in a number of the old mines in the area. As the exercise was about to move into a complex mine rope rescue we were called out by Police Scotland Forth Valley to assist a walker in the Glen of Sorrow area. The exercise was immediately canceled and team members deployed to the hill.Due to location of the casualty and the prospect of a lengthy stretcher evacuation we requested assistance from colleagues Tayside Mountain Rescue Team as well as some SCRO members who deployed with the team.The casualty was evacuated from the hill and handed over to the Scottish Ambulance Service. Many thanks to all who assisted the casualty on the hill before we arrived.As always we wish the casualty a speedy recovery.#anydayanyhouranyweather #workingtogether ... See MoreSee Less
