SUNDAY 10TH JANUARY 2021
We were contacted at 0153 hours by North Yorkshire Police requesting our assistance to go to the aid of two people in a car that was stuck in snow on a hilly section of road near to Castleton. Information from the police, subsequently confirmed by our members at the scene, was that the occupants were on an essential journey.
A Team Land Rover ambulance was deployed together with two of our Team members who lived relatively close to the scene. Conditions in the area were very treacherous under foot and new drifts had blocked some roads again. Upon arrival the two people were found to be cold but otherwise okay. Their vehicle was recovered to a level section of road and they were then escorted to a main road to continue their journey.
Four Team members were deployed on the incident that lasted approximately three 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
