Five Rotarians from Carnforth travelled to Lytham to take part in Resilience Exercise Goshawk. They were involved as stewards and befrienders at the hastily arranged Family and Friends Centre. A very useful exercise for everyone to see how rotary involvement can be very useful to the statutory services.
The scenario was a serious car accident in Blackpool and terrorist shootings from the adjacent Blackpool Tower. There were several fatal casualties. The Family &Friends Centre needed to be placed at a safe distance from the incident.
Carnforth Rotary was the only club from our District to take advantage of this training opportunity.
