Donegal Mountain Rescue recently went through grueling assessments to prove their Admin capability and Mountain Rescue capabilities.

As part of their assessment a scenario was played out based on a ‘call-out’ from a solo hill walker who sustained a suspected lower leg fracture.

Following the assessment two independent assessors gave their comments on how Donegal Mountain Rescue handled the situation.

One assessor told them to ‘be proud to be a part of DMR’, and the Donegal Mountain Rescue team were then invited to join one of the assessor’s teams in Scotland for Winter training.
