The Yorkshire Ambulance Service contacted the Team at approximately 1700 hours with a request to assist an ambulance crew at a remote Westerdale location. They were unable to get the ambulance close to the property and needed our help to transport the patient to the ambulance approximately half a mile away.
Upon arrival one of our Team members was able to transport the patient back to the ambulance and then, with assistance from another Team member and the crew, into the waiting ambulance. Others en route at that point were able to stand-down and return home.
The call-out lasted for just over 1.5 hours and directly involved two Team members (with six others stood-down en route) plus one other remotely co-ordinating our response.
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
