We were alerted by the ambulance service to a collapsed walker on Roseberry Topping.
As is often the case at the start of an incident, details were quite sketchy, so we deployed one of our landrover ambulances to Newton under Roseberry and the second one to Aireyholme Farm. This would give us access to all the paths around Roseberry Topping.
Shortly after we deployed the walker, a 39 year old Eston man was located quite near to the path from the carpark at Newton and was picked up by an ambulance, He was assessed by the paramedics and taken to James Cook University Hospital for further tests.
Seven team members were actively involved for 30 minutes with more on route.
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
