We were contacted by NEAS (North East Ambulance Service) at 13.39 to assist their crew after a motorcyclist crashed off the road.
The teams medical and rescue facilities couldn’t have been nearer as the incident was immediately outside the team base on the outskirts of Great Ayton.
Five motorcyclists from the Liverpool area were on their way to Whitby when the incident occurred.
Team members responded and helped Ambulance crews treat the injured man, and recover him from the ditch/hedgerow to the waiting Ambulance where he was transported to James Cook University hospital.
The scene was attended by both Yorkshire and Cleveland Police.
The closest callout to the team base, ever!
14 Team members were present for 1hr.
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
