The Team deployed at the request of the Yorkshire Ambulance Service to support the Great North Air Ambulance Service who were en route to a report of a man who had sustained injuries after falling from a tree in the Commondale area, approximately 8-miles east of Great Ayton.
A Team Land Rover with four members on board was dispatched from our Base with others making their own way to the scene. The casualty was treated by the air ambulance crew and, once stabilised, we carried him on their scoop stretcher approximately 100-metres to the helicopter for onward treatment at hospital. We wish him well for his recovery. Eleven Team members were involved in the incident for approximately one-hour before standing-down, to then travel time back to our Base, homes and places of work.
Applications can be made to join the team in a support role (Operational Support) or as a hill going (Search and Rescue) member.
Applications for either role can be made at any time. Intakes for Operational Support members occur at various times of the year. There is one annual intake for Search and Rescue normally each September.Join Now
