My story

[p]On the 6th December 2018, myself and three colleagues will be undertaking the Dunker Challenge - attempting to escape underwater from a Helicopter simulator.[/p][p]All money raised will go to Humber NHS trust Healthstars Charity [/p][p]FROM THE PUBLICITY FOR THE EVENT[/p][p]WHAT HAVE YOU LET YOURSELVES IN FOR?[/p][p]The ‘Dunker’ is the nickname for the Helicopter Underwater Escape Training Simulator. It is used to train people working in the offshore industry and is capable of a 180 degree revolution in a pool containing 250,000 litres of water.[/p][p]As you can imagine trying to escape from a submerged helicopter shell is not usually part of most people’s daily routine,but don’t despair we will take care of you.[/p][p]Participants will take part in a safety briefing before they are lowered into the water inside the helicopter shell, they will then have to escape through a window as it tilts up.[/p][p]The second part of the challenge will see those who take part have to free themselves from the shell as it submerges and rotates, resembling a real life emergency. Participants will be strapped in during both parts of the challenge and the operation mimics a helicopter making a controlled landing into the sea.[/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p]
