The Team provide assistance to the Yorkshire Ambulance Service NHS Trust last night at a difficult to access property near Danby. Thankfully, owing to the nature and location of the call we managed it by deploying just limited resources with one local Team member attending and another one (who was out of the area on search dog training) arranging for a local 4×4 driver to assist. Just over one-hour after the original call the patient was on the way to hospital with our best wishes.
Thirteen other Team members were either co-ordinating our response or on standby (including three who went to our Base to ‘prep’ a vehicle) but none of them were required at the scene. Many thanks to the 4×4 driver who saved us a lot of time and a larger call-out!
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
