Thames Valley Parachute Repacking Session

26 Mar 2017 - 09:00
26 Mar 2017 - 17:00

The TVHGC's Big Fat Repack will open doors at 0900 on the 26th March, at
the Rivermead Leisure Complex, Reading

This year we shall have two zip wires to reduce queuing times; and the
repacks are organised by reserve type, to make the task easier, quicker and
more focussed on your particular reserve.

In addition to the usual "how to reply and repack your reserve" and the
first aid talks, we shall have some extra talks on incident management,
reporting and reinforcing a culture of safety, as well as the direct
contribution of Air Ambulance pilots and Medics.
