SUNDAY 6TH JUNE 2021 (1142 HOURS)
We were called by the Yorkshire Ambulance Service just before midday with a request to attend to a report of a woman who had sustained an ankle injury after falling whilst crossing a stile on land near to Bank Foot, east of Ingleby Greenhow.
Two Team Land Rovers were deployed together with a number of volunteer Team members who had been called out to assist. Upon arrival they initially treated the casualty’s ankle injury and then helped her into one of the Land Rovers; a stretcher was not required.
She was then driven approximately 700-metres to the nearest road where arrangements were made for her to be collected by private car so that she could seek further medical assistance at hospital. We wish her well in her recovery.
Ten Team members were directly involved, supported by our call-out officer, with another six on standby in the area if needed. The incident lasted just under one-hour (plus travel time for members to return home and to get the vehicles to our Base for decontamination).
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
