Specialist Officials - RESCUE UNITS & STAGE SAFETY UNITS

 

The Vehicles

 

The vehicles are required to be licensed by the controlling body of UK Motor Sport, Motorsport UK. Motorsport UK regulations specify the minimum level of equipment to be carried by a Rescue Unit although the majority of vehicles are equipped well in excess of this minimum specification.

 

A Motor Sport Rescue Unit carries a comprehensive amount of medical equipment together with tools specifically designed to assist in removing a trapped driver from his vehicle.

The People

Rescue Units are manned entirely by unpaid volunteers and all crew members are required to hold current Motorsport UK Rescue licenses, and in some instances have added to this basic requirement by taking additional recognised emergency aid courses, such as First Aid at Work, usually in their own time.

The MSA has a recognized scheme for people who wish to train for a Rescue License. The minimum requirements for acceptance for training are as follows:

Race/Trackside/Stage Rally experience

Attend one approved Marshal training day including fire training and radio procedure training

Possession of a valid First Aid Certificate is recommended

Gain the endorsement of a Crew Chief on an existing Rescue Unit

Minimum age of 18

 

 

Purpose

 

Stage Safety Units transport licensed crew and

equipment to an incident to render the scene safe and

to render First Aid and spinal immobilisation until the

Rescue Unit arrives, if required.
