Saturday June 2nd 1920hrs.
We were called by North Yorkshire Police to assist with two walkers who were lost on the Cleveland Way somewhere near the Wainstones. The weather was ver poor with limited visibility due to the fog.
We made contact with the two ladies and sent a message to their mobile phones to receive a GPS location for them (SARLOC). We were then able to intercept them and escort them to their accommodation in Great Broughton.
Six Team members were actively involved in the incident, with more on standby. The incident lasted just over two hours.
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
