SUNDAY 30TH APRIL 2023 (1203 HOURS)
This was our third call-out in three days.
Whilst a number of Team members were involved in covering our Whalebones Walk along the east-coast paths of the Cleveland Way national trail, we received a request for assistance from the Yorkshire Ambulance Service regarding a man who had been taken ill whilst walking the same trail but a significant distance away, inland near Osmotherley.
Having redeployed some Team members from the Whalebones Walk we also dispatched a double-crewed Land Rover. Other members made their way to the scene separately. The casualty was treated by the YAS crew and we then carried him on a wheeled mountain rescue stretcher for approximately 400-metres to a waiting ambulance. We wish him well for his recovery. Fourteen Team members were deployed for just over 1.5-hours.
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
