We were alerted by a Guisborough dog walker to a Belgian couple who were in difficulties whilst on a walking holiday on the Moors. The Gentleman had slipped and hurt his leg which was making walking difficult.
Before we had sufficient details as to the incident’s location the phone signal was lost. The Team responded by dispatching a landrover ambulance and a couple of team members to Guisborough Forest to see if any signs of the couple could be found.
After a short search the two walkers were located and transported safely back to their car.
Two team members were actively involved for two hours with the rest on standby.
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
