Cave Rescue exercise


I would like to use this exercise on a diversity workshop. The organisation is, quite rightly, keen to ensure that no copyright is infringed. Basically it is a list of about ten people who are stuck in a cave and need rescuing. You have some detail of their lives and backgrounds and have to make a decision on the order in which they are rescued. I do have a copy of the exercise from other courses but I can't find any details of the author. Any help would be appreciated.

    Mike Woodcock’s 50 activities for team building – including cave rescue – is a reproducable resource. In other words, you can take small scale copies for educational and training purposes. I think it would be right to quote Mike as the creator and show the copyright as belonging to the publisher, Gower.
    It is good you are paying attention to copyright. Sadly many trainers are rather too cavalier in that respect.

    Hi All

    I remember Cave Rescue and a variant called The Bunker being used at the RAF College Cranwell as part of our officer training back in the early 80s. It seems this exercise has been with us for a long long time.

    This (or a similar version of the current exercise) was used during my Aircrew selection tests in 1975.

    Graham’s right that many trainers are a bit cavalier about copyright. I would imagine however that although Cave Rescue is a reproducable resource, this only applies if you or the organisation have bought a copy of the resource pack from which it came.

  5. Cave Rescue
    Originated at the State Emergency Services at Campbelltown, NSW Australia circa mid eighties, by myself with John Ghosn, Greg Morley and Alan Shepherd, all vertical rescue instructors for use in VR Training,it was based on a similar thing used by the army, stranded in the desert.

    It is free domain…..
