Survivex were delighted to once again welcome the Royal Netherlands Sea Rescue Institution (KNRM) team to our Aberdeen training centre this week.
The KNRM is a charity foundation who's primary mission is to save lives at sea in the Netherlands and further afield. All profits raised from their products, knowledge and services are invested in further improving its capabilities, including SAR and International cooperation. To learn more or donate to this worth-while institution please visit www.knrm.com.
KNRM delegates took to the Survivex pools on Monday to undergo our tailored HUET 'Experience' training. This practical course offers participants a valuable insight into boarding and securing liferaft quickly and safely, as well as escaping a submerged or upturned vessel.
Using our state-of-the-art environmental effects simulators we are able to realistically replicate the harsh environments that are likely to be encountered during search and rescue operations. Howling wind, driving rain along with thunder, lightening, emergency sirens, vessel and helicopter sound effects all add to the experience whilst ensuring a fully controlled and safe training environment is maintained.
At Survivex we believe failing to prepare is simply preparing to fail - that's why we aim to make our training as true to life as possible.
