Grizedale Forest

Incident 20 of 2023:-
16/04/23, 12.54, Grizedale Forest, SD332942
It was a cloudy but dry day as a party descended towards the Grizedale Visitor Centre on a steep track which is part-path, part-beck. One of the party slipped and had potentially broken his leg. North West Ambulance Service tasked us to help, and we despatched two Land Rovers to the end of the tarmac road. A short walk up the track took us to him. He was assessed, pain relief given and his leg was placed in a splint. We then stretchered him down the track to a waiting land ambulance, which took him to Furness General Hospital for further treatment.
15 volunteer members attended for 2 hours and 10 minutes.
