Ambulance Assistance – near Egglescliffe

WEDNESDAY 13TH MARCH 2024 (1339 HOURS)

We were contacted by the North East Ambulance Service regarding a casualty with a potentially serious leg injury after falling in Chatham Woods, to the north-west of Egglescliffe. Team members and a Land Rover were deployed to an RV-point at Burnwood Bridge carpark.

Upon arrival the casualty had received treatment from the NEAS crew so we placed her onto a rescue stretcher, wrapped her within a warming casualty bag and carried / wheeled her for approximately 600-metres to the waiting ambulance for onward treatment at hospital. We wish her for a swift recovery. Sixteen Team members were involved in the incident for approximately 2.5-hours by the time they had returned to Base, homes and places of work.
