Incident No: 26 2017

Mountain Rescue

Date: 10 July 2017
Time: 10.39 hrs
Location: Keswick area, Cumbria

Northumbria Police contacted North of Tyne Mountain Rescue Team and ourselves for advice yesterday morning. They were concerned for the wellbeing of a vulnerable male, who was potentially in Cumbria.

Using SARLOC, a smartphone location app, and MX SARMAN’s location tool, our Duty Controller was able to confirm the missing male was indeed outside of our operational area in Cumbria. With further information from our Duty Controller, the Police Search Adviser was able to ensure the vulnerable male was returned home to his family, safe and well.

The incident involved two Team members for 2 hours 50 minutes.

*** Incident No.6 ***

08.50hrs, 30 January 2016

Earlier today we received a request from Northumbria Police to assist in the search for Leanne Bramwell who was believed to be in the Widdrington or Cresswell. We responded along with North of Tyne Mountain Rescue Team.

Thankfully as one of our Incident Controllers was en-route to the briefing with the Police, Leanne was found safe and well. The positive outcome meant that our Team members could continue to Lyon Work & Rescue at Tebay, Cumbria for a training day. More on this later!

A total of 2 members were involved for 40 minutes.

*** Incident No.53 (update) ***

The Team was stood down mid-morning yesterday from providing additional support to the flood event in Cumbria. The impact (thankfully) wasn’t as great as expected. Our water team remained on standby for flood related incidents in Northumberland throughout the remainder of the day, ready to assist Northumberland Fire & Rescue Service if required.

During this time the Team responded to two other incidents – details to follow – and we were also requested to provide assets to assist other MRTs and emergency services in York where flood defences had failed. Due to an ongoing incident in our operational area we are unable to respond at this time.
