It was a mainly dry evening, but cloudy with intermittent hail showers.
We were asked by the North West Ambulance Service (NWAS) to assist with the evacuation of a lady who had passed out on a track near Lawson Park.
After further communication it was confirmed that the casualty was actually at Lawson Park but it was not clear whether the ambulance could safely negotiate the forest track up through Grizedale Forest. It was agreed that the team would be deployed to pick the lady up and take her to the ambulance where the track meets the main road. A full team call out was not initiated as there were enough personnel who had already arrived at the base to manage the evacuation. However, whilst en route the Team was stood down as NWAS had indeed managed to drive to the house.
9 Team Members attended this incident which took 50 minutes.
