Cave rescue mock drill in Krem Mawmluh

SHILLONG:

Following up on the Certified Cave Single Rope Technique (SRT), Cave Leadership, and Cave rescue Training in the UK and Republic of Ireland in July-August by a seven-member group of the Meghalaya Adventurers Association (MAA), a cave rescue mock drill was organised in Krem Mawmluh on November 12.

With the tremendous increase and interest in cave tourism and cave exploration, incidents and accidents inside the cave should not be overlooked. Sooner or later, mishaps are bound to happen, MAA general secretary Brian D Kharpran Daly said in a statement on Saturday.

“The Association feels that they have a great responsibility to oversee and take care of any such accidents should they happen. With that in mind, the Association is gearing itself up to meet such eventualities. Therefore, the importance of this Cave Rescue Mock Drill which is also the first such exercise of its kind in India is of the utmost importance,” he said.

The entire exercise was overlooked by Robin Sheen, a member of the Irish Cave Rescue

Organisation, Ireland, who was very impressed with the professionalism of the 21-member team that took part, he said.
