The leadership 'rescue' team building games – training activity


Background information

Your group is a rescue team, responsible for organising air/land rescues over a specialised geographical area.  A forest fire has broken out in an uninhabited region of thickly wooded foothills in the south west of your area.  The only buildings in this vast area are five isolated wooden chalets that were built during the Second World War as lookout posts. They are now used exclusively as base camps for volunteers from all over the world, hired by the International Parks Commission (IPC) to survey and evaluate the terrain for use as a World Recreation Centre.

Each chalet has a radio link with your rescue centre. Your team has already assigned four of the tiny rescue helicopters to evacuate chalets 1 to 4 and they cannot be diverted.

Your team’s task is to evacuate the people in Chalet 5.

No other rescue means are at your disposal. You have contacted the group spokesperson and have been informed that the fire is raging within a few kilometres of the chalet and the chalet is completely surrounded by the fire. Your helicopter can only rescue one person at a time and is currently being refuelled. Each flight to safe ground and back to the chalet will take approximately ten minutes, so it is likely that the fire will reach and destroy the chalet before all ten volunteers have been rescued. You estimate there is time to make five or six rescues, but the pilot says he may only be able to rescue three or four people before the fire reaches the chalet. The group in the chalet are unwilling to take the decision as to the sequence in which they should be rescued.

Your team leader has told you to stand by while the helicopter is being refuelled and prepared for the rescue mission. This could take anywhere between 10 minutes and an hour. Each of you should take a few moments to establish a personal rescue sequence by ranking the names in order from 1 (first) to 10 (last) before discussing the order as a group. You will need to reach consensus on the ranking. The only information available to you on each volunteer is on his/her résumé card from the IPC confidential personnel files. You may use any criteria you wish to make your decision, but it must be agreed upon by the whole group.

Good Luck.

This is one of our most popular team building games and we love it. It can be used during communication sessions, how to run more effective meeting training and even conflict management. As a tutor you (and eventually the learners) will see the preferred communication styles of the learners and some shy away, some just agree with the group and others take over.
