As we were returning to our Base after incident 33, we were alerted by North East Ambulance who needed assistance with a 40 year old Loftus man who had fallen 5 metres into a drainage ditch and hurt his leg.
In a multi-agency response, the Ambulance service treated the man at the scene whilst ourselves and members of Cleveland Fire And Rescue Service evacuated him out of the ditch to the waiting ambulance.
The incident lasted around an hour and a half and involved 15 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
