We were asked to help with a 20 year old student who had slipped whist taking photographs by the river at the top of the Valley Gardens in Saltburn. The young man slipped down a slope before dropping 4 or 5 metres into Skelton Beck and sustaining injuries to his legs.
We assisted the HART team from NEAS with the evacuation by transporting the injured man a few hundred metres along a landrover track to the nearest road an a waiting ambulance. The incident involved 15 team members and lasted just over an hour.
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
