Incident No: 115 2018

Date: 16 September 2018
Time: 20.00hrs
Location: Walltown Quarry, Hadrian’s Wall

Late afternoon yesterday North of Tyne Mountain Rescue Team and ourselves were responded to a request from North East Ambulance Service. A walker had slipped and sustained a leg injury a few hundred yards from the car park at Walltown Quarry on Hadrian’s Wall.

Vehicles and #volunteer members were swiftly deployed to RV at Walltown Quarry. #PhoneFind, a SMS location tool, was used to pin point the exact location of the casualty.

Local members liaised with the on scene NEAS Community Paramedic and Ambulance crew. The casualty was then evacuated a short distance on the NEAS stretcher as our other resources arrived at the RVP.

The incident involved 19 Team members for 2 hours 30 minutes.
