Incident No: 97 2018

Date: 4 July 2018
Time: 14.52hrs
Location: Crag Lough, Hadrian’s Wall

Mid-afternoon yesterday a climber fell from Crag Lough and sustained serious injuries. The North East Ambulance Service requested the assistance of North of Tyne Mountain Rescue Team and ourselves and within 9 minutes our volunteers were en-route with two Team 4x4s deployed.

The Doctor and Paramedic from the Great North Air Ambulance Service were first on scene and assessed, treated and stabilised the casualty.

Given the difficult, unstable terrain below the crag and the worsening condition of the casualty, the Maritime & Coastguard Agency (MCA) search and rescue helicopter was requested with a view to winching the casualty on board. Thankfully a helicopter from Caernarfon was training in the Lake District and swiftly arrived on scene.

Great multi-agency teamwork then led to the successful evacuation of the injured climber to hospital. We hope he makes a full and swift recovery, and is back out climbing again very soon.

Incident No: 67 2018

Date: 21 March 2018
Time: 15.08 hrs
Location: Humford Mill, near Bedlington

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.

Incident No: 66 2017

Date: 30 December 2017
Time: 11.23 hrs
Location: Peterlee, County Durham

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.
