*** Incident No.14 ***

Thursday 4 April 2016, 13.50hrs

The Team was requested earlier today by the North East Ambulance Service to assist with the evacuation of a female suffering a seizure near to St Cuthbert’s Cave in North Northumberland. The Ambulance Paramedics were unable to access the site by vehicle and requested our support to stretcher the casualty off the hill.

We along with North of Tyne MRT responded with one vehicle. We also requested support from the Border Search & Rescue Unit given the incident was in the northern part of our operational area.

Whilst en-route we were stood down as the Great North Air Ambulance was able to land on near to the casualty.

A total of 7 members were involved for 40 minutes.
