Do you know how to check a vehicle and ensure its fit for the task ahead?
Would you know what to do if you have a breakdown?
Can you fix it?
For remote medics and humanitarian aid workers working in remote areas, reliable transport is an essential part of any expedition. You need to feel confident that your vehicle will get you and the essential cargo on board to your destination and back to base without any difficulty. After all, if you or your equipment cannot reach the target audience then there’s no reason for the expedition to go ahead.
So, as part of our ‘Extreme Skills’ theme running across all 3 days of the conference, our extremely popular ‘Expeditionary Vehicle Maintenance’ workshops will return to WEM19, run by experts Russell Drew and Nick Cranfield. These sessions will offer a host of hands-on practical advice and top tips for any wannabe remote medic or aid worker travelling into challenging environments reliant on transport as an essential part of their expedition.
Our guest speakers Russell and Nick, who with 34 years of experience in expeditionary vehicle maintenance between them, will share their own experiences (the good, the bad and the ugly) of working in extreme locations across the globe. They’ll speak about the various scenarios that could jeopardise an expedition or field mission and how best to deal with those situations as well as passing on top tips for effective expeditionary vehicle maintenance – advice which could prove life-saving for you and your crew.
