2009 Exercise 02.04.09 1300 – 1700BST

The coastguard team carried out a joint exercise with our flight crew colleagues of Coastguard Rescue helicopter 106.  The purpose of the exercise was to establish the best method of rescuing a casualty trapped in mud in inaccessible locations.  Due to our constantly changing coastline with rock falls and landslides, there are places, in particular  Black Ven and to the east of Charmouth, that are extremely difficult to reach without the help of a helicopter.
