Cave Rescue Gallery

Crewe CPC have contributed extensively to the work of Derbyshire Cave Rescue Organisation (DCRO), almost right from the formation of the club. Both underground and on the surface. Cave Rescue in the UK depends entirely on the efforts of volunteers, both for its work and for fund raising. Caving is statistically a safe sport, but if things do go wrong underground in the Peak District, then DCRO will be there to help. Here are a few pictures of Crewe members involvement.

A multipod was purchased for DCRO from a bequest made by late CreweCPC member Rob Farmer. This has proved invaluable for rescuing casualties from surface shafts like the old lead mines that are common in the Peak District.
