Mountain Search and Rescue’s Wolkberg Training
Training Dates: 23 – 27 October 2020
Total Training Time: 5 Days
Units attending: SARZA, SAPS SAR Limpopo, EMS, Limpopo, GSAR, MSAR
SARZA was invited to the interagency training in the Wolkberg Wilderness area which was facilitated by MCSA Search and Rescue (MSAR).The Wolkberg area presents a great training ground for a number of Search and Rescue scenarios; from mountain peaks, forests, open fields and challenging roads to traverse across. The training camp also provided the perfect opportunity to test the recently donated VSAT (internet via satellite uplink) system that was donated by @ParatusTelecommunications(Pty)Ltd.
The various agencies integrated and worked exceptionally well together and it was great to see what can be accomplished when we work together. SARZA flew the flag high in terms of our capabilities, attitudes, team work and the resources that we bring to these events, exercises and on call outs.
