Ever wondered just how mountain rescue operations are conducted? At a recent edition of FEAT (Fascinating Expedition and Adventure Talks) held in Johannesburg, mountain rescue guide and instructor Rob Thomas shared some very insightful and interesting behind the scenes information on how he recruits new volunteers to his team, trains them for work in the field and much more. His profiles of his most frequent “customers” and his answer to who pays for the operations are particularly interesting.
