Exercises are an important part of Arran Resilience work. They bring teams together and allow everyone to work through a live scenario, in order that important considerations can be made for future planning.
Exercises can be ‘table-top’ or using simulated incidents. We will bring information on the exercises held to date, to this section of the website (work in progress).
- Alliance – November 2011 – view report – multi-incident scenario
- Bavaria – March 2012 – led by Strathclyde Fire & Rescue – fire at Brodick Castle
- Dauntless – March 2012 – postponed due to the Arran snow incident – ran in November 2013 (see Events) – see photos – 2 car RTC with difficult rope-access extrication of casualties
- Endeavour – March 2013 – coach vs car crash on The Rodden, Shiskine
Following changes to the Emergency Planning arrangements in statutory agencies, further exercises have been the remit of the Ayrshire Local Resilience Partnership. In April 2015 they organised Exercise Buoyant involving a ferry incident at Brodick pier.
We continue to support, where possible, and encourage smaller inter-team exercises.
