A 81 year old gentleman from Thornaby had fallen on the path near the top of Roseberry Topping and sustained cuts to his head. He was treated at the scene by a couple of passing nurses and a Yorkshire Ambulance Service paramedic. The incident was quite near to incident 48 and we were getting quite good at driving across the hillside to the area.
We carried the injured man to one of our land rovers before we drove him to meet with an ambulance waiting at the nearby farm.
18 team members were involved for 2 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
