MVIS | MVIS announce sponsorship of Derby Mountain Rescue Team
With MVIS HQ being situated in Matlock, the company workforce has it better than most when it comes to views on its way to work.
The idyllic scenery that surrounds MVIS HQ is more than just a treat for the eyes however, with many people choosing this area as an ideal place to walk.
Located in the Peak District, Matlock has its fair share of surrounding mountains, which are exciting and beautiful to explore for many people, but it is also highly dangerous under the wrong conditions, requiring the local Derby Mountain Rescue Team to be as familiar with the area as the locals, bringing with them the responsibility of attending incidents of concern that the normal emergency services would be largely unequipped to handle.
Derby Mountain Rescue Team is a voluntary emergency service who attend callouts in response to requests from Derbyshire Police, East Midlands Ambulance Service, and West Midlands Ambulance Service. Derby Mountain Rescue Team is on call 24 hours a day, 365 days a year and consists entirely of highly skilled unpaid volunteers.
Their main function is the search and rescue of injured or missing people, principally in upland or mountainous areas, but they can be called on whenever their specialist skills may be of use, such as searching for vulnerable persons in rural areas.
The team are trained for many different types of incident including crag rescue and rope access, missing person search, flood and swift water rescue, and pre-hospital emergency medicine.
As a company, MVIS is encouraging its team to increase fitness through walking in the local area during lunch breaks and outside of work. Knowing that the Derby Mountain Rescue Team is watching out in the area gives employees an added confidence that the team is safe when exploring the beautiful Matlock area.
MVIS is very proud to announce that the business now sponsors Derby Mountain Rescue.
The sponsorship reasserts the company’s commitment to not just safety, but also its local community, helping to contribute both in financial terms and in awareness of all the amazing work the Derby Mountain Rescue Team do.
Anne Ashman, UK Group Commercial and Operations Director commented:
“Where we place our support as a company is a very important reflection of our priorities. We want it to be known that we place the highest value on the safety of our team and our local community. The Derby Mountain Rescue Team are highly valuable to our local area and we are very pleased to be sponsoring them.
“Sponsoring Derby Mountain Rescue is just one example of how seriously MVIS takes its corporate social responsibility. We believe that Derby Mountain Rescue is a cause that is very worthy of support and we look forward to working with them in the future.”
