    One of our Groups has reported a near-miss recently and there is a learning opportunity here for us all . Shortly after they crossed a fence-line at the end of a training exercise a 10m high manuka tree fell across the fence at the place where they had just crossed.

    The considerations at the time were windy and they suggest that it’s a good idea to consider the risk of falling trees and tree branches when selecting training venues, especially when it’s windy.

    Great to see these lesson being shared.
