Rig 5 and Rubble Pile

A large training venue incorporating several different scenarios:

  • Collapsed structure, with destabilised floors and walls.
  • Access points for Safe Working at Height and Casualty Extrication training.
  • A large tunnel complex for confined space operation and casualty search and rescue operations.

The opportunities are almost endless. The venue has managed use of smoke and noise, and is fully CCTV monitored, enabling safe operation without close supervision. Previous exercises and operations include; IED response, shoring, breaking and breaching activities, multi-method search operations (to dogs and combined technology), lifting and moving, casualty triage and trauma care, casualty rescue, rope rescue, and use of the full USAR equipment capability.
