Claife Heights, March 15th 2013 13:10hrs (5/2013)
Well we have had a very quiet start to the new year, so it was just a matter of time before the lull in the incidents came to an end.
The Team was called to a similar incident as the previous one. A lady had slipped on wet grass whilst walking with a group near the Three Dubs Tarn on Claife Heights, and possibly fractured her ankle. Two landrovers went to her assistance and access was good because of the forest tracks in the area. She was given pain relief as the ankle was splinted. Unfortunately the ETA for the arrival of the ambulance was an hour and it was therefore decided to transport the lady to Furness General Hospital ourselves. Two team members were deployed with this task whilst the Base informed A&E of the situation.
As we were now one landrover down our third vehicle came to the rescue to pick up the remainder of the team.
12 Members attended this call out which took nearly 2 3/4hrs.
