We were alerted to an injured mountain biker on a route called “Nomad” in Guisborough Forest. The 46 year old cyclist from Guisborough had gone over his handlebars and landed heavily.
We managed to reach the incident site in one of our landrover ambulances and our team members were able to treat the injured man before he was on a mountain rescue stretcher to the landrover waiting on the forestry track. The man was transported to the nearest road, distance of around a kilometre, and handed over to the ambulance service for transport to James Cook University Hospital.
Twenty team members were involved for two 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
