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.
Please like, share and comment to raise awareness of the volunteer #MountainRescue Teams.
