Coniston Village 29th December 2017 09:29hrs 41/2017
Snow had fallen over night and there was a 2″ covering in the village, with intermittent snow showers still prevailing.
When weather conditions are bad, the Rescue Team is always on standby to help with any local incidents should there be a chance the ambulance service may have difficulty in getting through. In this case, we received a call from NWAS to go to the aid of a gentleman who lived in the village.
However, the Team which had been put on standby only, was stood down shortly afterwards as further assistance was not required.
The incident took 1/2hr and 3 Team Members were involved.
