Episode 9 - Intervention Rescue | CMC GRIMP North America Recap Mini-Series



In this CMC GRIMP North America 2022 recap, we are joined by Intervention Rescue (@interventionrescue). Intervention Rescue is a UK based technical access and rescue training provider that offerers consulting services for rescue plans and risk assessments. Intervention rescue is comprised of professionals from the rope access industry and firefighters. In this CMC Podcast, Doug interviews Intervention Rescue member Nick Croudace about: what drew a UK based team to compete in a competition in California, the benefits and challenges of being a UK team competing in an American styled competition, and what their main takeaways were from competing.

Overhead during the episode:

“It was the most gritty, the most real world; it felt like a real incident.”

“Play with ropes, in the sun, in California, on a battleship; not many people going to say no to that I think.”

“The scenarios where very different than what we have been through before.”
