We were called by the Police to help a man from Seamer who had collapsed whilst cycling on the moors with a friend. The man, who was in his 70s, was on “Ingleby Incline” near Ingleby Greenhow.
He was reached by members of the Police and Ambulance Service as well as ourselves by driving two kilometres along the forestry tracks in the area.
He was treated at the scene by the paramedics before being transported to James Cook Hospital.
Ten team volunteers responded to the callout that lasted 40 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
