This of course wasn’t a real rave/hall party, if you look in the photos of the news articles everyone there is way too old (the frightwig though isn’t too far off some of the fashions I have seen :D)
On a serious note the Emergency Services regularly do hold exercises like this which is by and large a good thing, and its perfectly normal for them to try and base them on real life scenarios.
Alas it is not unusual for violence to break out at some of the raves/hall parties held in this region in recent times; nothing major compared to London or other big cities but still requiring investigation and treatment. As well as freakouts and OD’s from NPS or party drugs, all of this has happened here in recent years.
Also in many rural areas the St Johns volunteers (who are well trained) can actually get to a remote location quicker than the main Ambulance service due to road congestion, local knowledge and often lack of available vehicles at Eastamb (who are already dealing with the casualties from the licensed premises..)
LOL, meanwhile in the USA a lady got shot and killed by the police doing once of these type things because they were too dumb to tell blanks from live ammo.
USA USA USA
This actually seems like pretty good training, gotta be ready for anything in that line of work.
