SATURDAY 17TH APRIL 2021
This was the second call-out of the day and our eighth in the space of nine days.
The Yorkshire Ambulance Service contacted the Team at noon requesting assistance with a report of a man who had been taken ill near to Ingleby Incline, a few miles from Great Broughton. Having just returned home and to our Base from this morning’s call-out, a number of Cleveland MRT members were called out again and deployed to the scene.
Upon arrival the casualty was assessed by Team members and shortly after that he was placed in an ambulance for onward transport to hospital.
Sixteen Team members attended with three others en route although they were not required (plus our call-out officer co-ordinating the response remotely). The incident lasted approximately 1-hour plus additional return travel time back to members’ homes and our Base.
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
