After no rescue call-outs for over two months, we had our second in two-days! We were contacted at 1.43pm to assist the North East Ambulance Service in recovering a casualty from an area to the west of Brotton. A 79-year old local lady, out walking with her family, had stumbled and fallen injuring her lower back and leg. After she was treated at the scene, Team members carried her to the waiting ambulance for further treatment.
17 members were involved plus two others remotely supporting and controlling the incident, which lasted approximately two 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
