Rescue preparation

2 and 3 June, 2020 Work Day and Safety Orientation

Update – This event has been canceled. It will be rescheduled to some future date.

From Shannon Robinson:

We have confirmed a date for the Orientation/Familiarization, including Cave Entrance with the MCFPD. It is June 3rd, at 8am. The plan is to meet-and-greet and show the Volunteers of the Mid-County Fire Protection Department (MCFPD) how to access the Site, Silo and Cave. Introduce them to the operation of the Winch, and other safety measures in place. We will awe them with Maps of the Cave. Those that want to can also experience a trip down into the abyss of Carroll Cave. We will entertain 2 groups of MCFPD and other Institutions associated with them (those that MCFPD would call-in to help them) throughout the day. One group of 15 in the morning, and another group of 15 in the afternoon. We will provide Coffee, Hot Choc, Donuts and Bagels to our Volunteers. This is a Rain or Shine event. If it rains, we will address parking then. The goal is to acclimate them to the site and introduce ourselves to each other. read more

Trip leader training outline

The attached document is an outline of the topics covered during trip leader training. Although it is mainly intended for those who are leading trips in Carroll Cave, the information is useful to anyone who participates on a trip.

This outline was created some years ago. It is still relevant, though a few items are dated.
