Midland Hill Climb Championship Rescue

A previous grant from BMSTT had enabled us to replace the hydraulic rescue equipment on one of our two Rescue Units with state of the art battery powered equipment, which radically improved the efficiency of the crew on that unit both in terms of the time saved to set up the equipment and the ease of handling the lighter equipment.

At the beginning of 2020 we had the opportunity to source a further set of battery powered equipment for our second Rescue Unit, and a further grant by BMSTT helped to enable this purchase, so that we now have two identically equipped units. As well as giving us a common level of efficiency between the two units, it has also removed the need for training on hydraulic rescue equipment and allowed all crews to concentrate on the use of solely battery powered equipment.
