Casualty Evacuation Procedure
In the highly unlikely event of a serious injury the casualty evacuation procedure will be to assist the casualty on the spot initially and then to make there way as a team to the nearest checkpoint. If required then the casualty will be evacuated to Neville Hall Hospital in Abergavenny. If the casualty can not be moved then 2 members of the team are to make there way to the nearest checkpoint and the on call emergency services will be tasked to help evacuate the casualty. The 2 members of the team will be taken back to the start.
Parking at Brecon Rugby fields only. This will be clearly marked out.
