The Cave Rescue Organisation would like to express its thanks for the generous donation of replacement equipment, from both Lyon Equipment and Heightec, to replace the stolen items from the KMC traverse line. This has saved us a considerable expense and helped to put us quickly into a position where we can re-tackle the route for the Eurospeleo event, should it be needed on a rescue. A spokesperson for Lyon Equipment said “We were alarmed to hear about the theft of Cave Rescue Organisation equipment from Kingsdale Master Cave recently, in particular as that equipment was placed in order to provide a safe exit from the cave system in event of a flood during the forthcoming EuroSpeleo2016 event.
Lyon Equipment have long been supporters of the CRO and our Chairman Ben Lyon is the current President of the organisation. Under the circumstances we decided to provide replacement karabiners so that the emergency route can be re-established”
This sort of support from commercial sponsors is invaluable, and ensures that we can continue to provide the service we all volunteer for. A big thumbs up from all our members!
