Whilst we were on our annual Whale Bones fundraising walk from Whitby to Marske we were asked to assist the lifeboat crew from Staithes with a Kayaker who they had rescued from the sea. Our to the traffic congestion an ambulance crew couldn’t reach the lifeboat station so we used our landrover to initially transport ambulance paramedics from the main road to the foreshore at Staithes and then evacuate them and the casualty back to their ambulance.
The incident involve two team members for 30 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
