2019 Open Day
« on: March 21, 2019, 11:04:52 am »
Our Annual Open Day will be held on the 19th of May

The DCRO Open Day is an opportunity to see what DCRO does, play with some interesting kit,
learn or refresh some skills which you may find useful underground and to meet and network
with other local cavers. If after that you do feel interested in joining the team, there will be
people there who can explain more about what DCRO membership entails and the benefits it
can give you.

The Open Day starts at 0945 with a brew provided and during the day there will be a rotation of
practical sessions to take part in;

 What is DCRO and what do we do?
 Rigging for rescue.
 Stretchers and stretcher handling.
 First Aid / Casualty Care underground.
 Surface and Underground Comms.

There will be a break for lunch (cheese cobs and more brew are provided) and the day will finish
around 3.30pm.

There is no charge for the Open Day and the refreshments and lunch are provided free.
If you are interested in attending the DCRO Open Day please email the DCRO Training Officer
at training(at) or use the form on our website so we can ensure there are adequate refreshments.

Clothing: Bring outdoor clothing, helmet and lamp and your SRT kit.
Parking: Drive down Staden Lane and park on the road to the rear of the Fire Station where you
will be met by someone from DCRO. Please park responsibly as this is an operational Fire and
Rescue Centre.

Our official Flyer is attached, please feel free to circulate it around you caving clubs and we hope to see some of you there
