Suitable exercise


The course is all about Search Planning and how you need a sytematic approach to it. You start off determining the area to be searched and then decide on the best way using your available resources to cover the whole area.
This is my first time running the course and I would love to have something right at the beginning to illustrate the advantages of having a systematic approach. I would be extremely grateful if anyone could come up with some ideas.

  1. Re: In answer to your query…

    I have no background in what you’re training but I find the beginning of any training starts well with a themed energiser… particularly one to do with team work, discussion and group decision making, which I sense may be important to what you’re training?

    I have an exercise called ‘Lost At Sea’ (seriously) and it makes the team think about two resources from a list of things they have available (as they can only take two resources) that would be most useful when lost at sea and why they would pick these (they have to discuss and agree the resources as a group)

    It may not be what you are looking for at all – I wouldn’t want it to bring down the seriousness or credibility of your training – *but* may be a light-hearted warm-up exercise to get people talking and discussing things with each other.

    Let me have your email address and I’ll mail it to you if you want it.


  2. Possible Exercise

    Happy to share exercises I developed when working as the training manager for the Lifeboats if you let me have your e-mail address.

    There are a series in the ‘Lost at’ series, given your audience I would steer clear of the ‘at sea’ version. For a longer exercise you might try something like the Zin Obelisk or the Heinemann exercise.

    Good luck, Chris.
