Mountain Rescue Matters

scotland

This is a key part of the site and is a forum for sharing good practice and useful information on a wide variety of general and specific topics. It will not be static but will change and develop as topics emerge and others fall by the wayside or become dated. Its usefulness will depend on teams and others submitting information which they are willing to share and which they feel may be of value to others rescue teams. Items for inclusion should be submitted to – contact@mountainrescue.info.
