Incident 32 Rescue Roseberry Topping: Sunday 16th July 1200hrs.
We were called to help a 53 year old Redcar man who had collapsed whilst climbing Roseberry Topping with his young son.
The team were in the area at the time on a training exercise as part of our Peer review weekend so a quick response took place using personal from the visiting teams (Swaledale, Wasdale and Dartmoor).
The man was located above the tree line overlooking the village of Newton, he was examined at the scene by team personnel before we were able to assist him slowly down the hillside to the carpark at Newton.
The incident lasted just over an hour and involved 12 team members.
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
