Session code: OT10

Oral / Technical, Main EuroSpeleo Conference

Mr Paul Taylor


Since its arrival in the UK in 2013 Cave Link has been extensively tested and subsequently adopted by 6 of the UK Cave Rescue Teams. With gCRG being one of those that has purchased it.This presentation will take a look at the equipment showing what it can do and can't do. Show where it excells over other forms of communications equipment. Provide an opportunity for a Table Top Exercise. Show how teams with Cave Link are joining up to expand networks and also show some of the coverage results that have been achieved. If you attend a Cave Rescue in the UK you could find yourself working with this equipment so an ideal opportunity to see it.
