SUNDAY 17TH OCTOBER 2021 (1409 HOURS)
After a lull in calls for a few weeks, we received a call to assist the Yorkshire Ambulance Service and Yorkshire Air Ambulance on farmland near Brompton, Northallerton where a woman had fallen from a horse.
A number of Team members made their way to the scene where the casualty was already being treated for her injuries by the medical staff present.
The first two of our Team members to arrive were able to assist in helping to transfer the woman onto a ’scoop’ stretcher. A short while later they were joined by more colleagues together with a Team Land Rover allowing them to lift the casualty onto a rescue stretcher, enabling her to be carried in the Land Rover for approximately 600m across fields to a waiting ambulance, for onward treatment in hospital. We wish her well with her recovery.
Thirteen Team members attended with others available but not required to attend, all co-ordinated by our Call-out Officer. The incident lasted approximately 1.5 hours plus return travel time.
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
