SARDA IoM and Civil Defence training with Bristows

On Friday 29th January Jim and Star, Gary and Holly, Marc and Will took part alongside Civil Defence members training with the Bristows Search and Rescue helicopter on Peel Headlands.  This involved familiarisation, safety briefing and a talk inside the helicopter.  The dogs then did a walk through with the helicopters auxiliary engine on.  The team then decided to put the dogs away due to the stress caused by the downwash of the helicopter.  All team members were then winched in pairs before the helicopter departed for Caernarfon.  A big thanks to Bristows and Pilot Martin Sheppard and his crew.
