One moor night: emergencies, training and rural space
Abstract:Drawing on an ethnographic account of a Mountain Rescue training exercise, this paper uses Halfacree's threefold model of rurality in an effort to reconcile structural and experiential research on the outdoors. It highlights the importance of understanding the diverse emotional, physical and technical ways that agencies engage with outdoor space and how these engagements are influenced by ways that rural localities are structured and represented.
