WEDNESDAY 13TH APRIL 2022 (2029 HOURS)
Following on from a call-out earlier in the day, a number of Team members were taking part in training sessions as is the norm on a Wednesday evening. Some were at the Base for a session about radio communications whilst others were in Hutton Woods near Guisborough on a rescue exercise.
Mid-way through training we were contacted by Cleveland Police with a request to assist them in a search for a high-risk missing person. Training was suspended and all those in Hutton Woods returned to their RV-point and, as with those at the Base, made preparations for a night-time search whilst our Call-out Officer liaised with Cleveland Police.
The Police later advised us that we were no longer required and so all Team members returned either to the Base or travelled directly home. Twenty-eight Team members were involved for just under one-hour.
