Open Day

The DCRO OPEN DAY will be held on Saturday 12th May 2018
at the DCRO base at the Fire and Rescue Centre, Staden Lane
off the A515 just outside Buxton (SK17 9RZ for Sat-Nav).

Our Open Day is for experienced cavers only, who may be looking at joining the team or just want to know more about how cave rescue works. If you are interested in caving and don’t know where to begin is a good place to start

The Open Day is NOT a ‘hard sell’ DCRO recruiting event. It 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.
