We were asked by the Yorkshire Ambulance Service to assist with a walker who had slipped and sustained lower leg injuries on a remote section of the Cleveland Way path near the Wainstones Crags.
We deployed one of our landrover ambulances into the area and called the team out to rendezvous at the carpark at Claybank.
As we were on route to the incident site we were contacted by an aircraft from Yorkshire Air Ambulance who had also responded to the incident but who were finding landing at the incident site difficult.
Members of the team continued towards the incident site in their 4×4 vehicles before we were informed that the injured walker was now on the air ambulance and that we could stand down.
18 team members responded to the callout that lasted about an hour.
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
