Yesterday marked another milestone for the Team. It is not even the end of March and we’ve had a record breaking year for the number of incidents – 67 so far!
Northumbria Police requested our assistance in evacuating a casualty from a difficult to access location in Humford Woods. The North East Ambulance Service were already on scene treating the casualty.
Along with North of Tyne Mountain Rescue Team we duly responded. The casualty was swiftly evacuated to a crewed Ambulance before being taken to hospital.
It was the first incident for the on loan #MREWDiscovery in #Northumberland, the timing of which couldn’t have been better as one of our Landrover Defenders is currently off the road and in need of some TLC.
The incident involved 10 Team members for 1 hour 15 minutes.

Well we spoke too soon! The quiet spell ended yesterday when Teesdale and Weardale Search and Mountain Rescue Team requested our assistance along with North of Tyne Mountain Rescue Team and Search And Rescue Dog Association England to search for a vulnerable female. The female had been missing overnight in the Peterlee area and given the wintery conditions there was even more of an urgency to the search.
Thankfully at mid-afternoon the female was located, then treated and evacuated by the #MountainRescue teams.
A job well done.
The incident involved 5 Team members and 2 from North of Tyne MRT for 4 hours.
