RECRUITMENT

From time to time Kintail Mountain Rescue Team needs to recruit new members. These may be either hillworkers or recreational mountaineers. They must be resident in the area, physically fit and ready to contribute to the team effort.

The ideal recreational candidate is a competent summer and winter hillwalker and has some first aid training. Experience of climbing (or caving ropework), radio procedure, helicopter operations, avalanche awareness or advanced first aid is a welcome bonus. 

Those not involved in mountaineering but whose work takes them regularly out into wild country on foot may have a substantial skill base that is different from that of the recreational mountaineer but which is highly valuable for mountain rescue. 
 

BECOMING A MEMBER 

If you know a member of the team then feel free to approach them and ask about whether we need knew members. Otherwise, write to us at the address given on the Money page. 

Prospective members should discuss their training and experience with the Team Leader and the Training Officer. Those who satisfy the basic requirements should attend monthly training exercises for a probationary period after which they may be added to the callout list.
