Year 12 geographers at Spalding High School have heard about the role of a search and rescue worker in an earthquake zone.

Former pupil Adam Turner, who combines his daily job with his role with the charity Search and Rescue Assistance in Disasters (SARAID) spoke to the students about his work in Nepal earlier this year. This was particularly relevant as the pupils had just started studying tectonic hazards as part of their A2 geography course.

Adam explained his role in the charity and spoke about April’s Nepalese earthquake, and how SARAID worked as part of a mixed international search and rescue team. He outlined how important it is to understand how location affects an earthquake’s impact.
