Scapa Flow is situated in the Orkney Islands, off the North cost of Scotland. It’s one of the best places to dive in the UK, and often features in the top ten dive sites in the world. There are a number of World War One battleships resting on the bottom along with various other wrecks
It’s that time of year again, as the colder weather sets in scuba diving in the sea isn’t possible so we spend our time running courses and diving at inland sites. We run a Practical Rescue Management (PRM) course once a year or so and here are a few video clips of the course in action.
The start of the day
A couple more casualties to be rescued
We won’t name names, but this is why you shouldn’t have a massive fry up and then go diving! Nothing like a real casualty to make things more interesting 🙂
Capernwray is a commercial dive centre, and a place go scuba diving frequently. You can find more information about Capernwray by clicking here
Practical Rescue Management is one of the many BSAC skill development courses, we usually run this once a year.
The course involves a day of lectures and live saving skills followed by a practical day of managing rescue scenarios. As you can see from the pictures, it’s very hands on.
Unfortunately, ‘resussie Annie’ didn’t quite make it through the day unharmed
Mid Lancs meets every Tuesday night at Wigan Life centre. If you fancy popping down to see what goes on, we’re usually there between 8:30 and 9:30pm. If you’d like to give a try dive a go, drop us a line through the contact us tab
Union Jack t-shirts are not required, the pictures were taken at the start of the Olympic games 🙂
