Kim Germishuys reports on training with the Air Mercy Service's helicopter Skymed 2 which was conducted at Station 23, Wilderness. It included volunteers from Station 29 ( Air Sea Rescue unit) helicopter rescue swimmers from Mossel Bay, Wilderness, Knysna & Plettenberg Bay.
The main objective of the exercise was crew training ... especially training in the surf zone. We have found that some rescues happen in rough conditions and training to rescue a casualty in surf, is the best training environment for that scenario.
