Coppermines Valley 29th May 17:20hrs 23/2016
The Duty Team Leader was contacted by Police for advice regarding a party struggling with a dog that had worn out the pads on it’s paws and was in extreme discomfort. The party was carrying him down the track from Levers Water on an ingenious makeshift stretcher made of walking poles and jumpers, but were finding it difficult on a hot day after walking the complete ridge from the Old Man to Swirl How.
After contacting the party and getting a confirmed location it was decided that the best course of action was to drive up to them and pick up the dog and owner and take them to their vehicle.
A limited Call Out was made and one vehicle deployed and four personnel attending the incident which lasted 45 minutes.
