Rescue 2020: a detailed appraisal of mountain rescue in the Lake District, commissioned 18 months ago from Bob Sharp and Archie Roy, has been made public. This follows a brief period of internal communication within the Lake District Search and Mountain Rescue Association (LDSAMRA) and its member teams and consultation with key partners.
The review has identified nine areas where recommendations can be produced, ranging from Funding and Insurance to working with Partners. The region’s MRTs will be consulting and working on these over the coming months.
The summary of Recommendations from Rescue 2020 can be downloaded here.
Kirkby Stephen is one of the LDSAMRA member teams.
