#033 Swaledale Mountain Rescue - A Leader's Perspective

#033 Swaledale Mountain Rescue - A Leader's Perspective

Welcome back to the next episode of Inside Yorkshire. In this episode Susan talks to Pete Roe, a rescue leader with several decades of experience rescuing people and animals in distress. Pete explains that there is so much involved in coordinating the teams of people involved, more than would be expected and each event unique in itself. He gives a clear and detailed account of what is involved when there is a callout and also some amusing tales of unusual rescues he has been involved in.

About the Guest:

Pete Roe is an avid cave explorer, caving being a way of life for him since his brother introduced him to the sport at the age of 11. That breadth of experience over the years has proven to be extremely useful when involved in underground rescues. When he was first involved with the mountain rescue team he was the only volunteer in Swaledale; now he is a rescue leader, sharing his experience and expertise with a much expanded group of people who give up their precious time to assist those in distress. 

Swaledale Mountain Rescue Team (SMRT) is a registered charity which provides a mountain and cave rescue service within the Swaledale and Wensleydale areas of North Yorkshire.  The team is made up of a group of highly trained volunteers who are available to be called out for a variety of land based search and rescue operations, any time day or night.  SMRT provide a 24 hours per day, 365 days per year service.
