We were asked to help paramedics from the North East Ambulance Service (NEAS) with the evacuation of a 91 year old man from the Guisborough area who had fallen in woodland on the outskirts of Guisborough injuring his chest.
We assisted the NEAS paramedics and those from HART (Hazardous Area Response Team) who had traveled down from the Newcastle area.
The injured man was transported out of the woodland on the HART’s off road vehicle and taken by ambulance to hospital.
18 team members were involved for 90 minutes.
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
