Location: Edges Green, near Hadrian’s Wall
Last Sunday was a busy day for the Team with an ongoing incident at Greenhead and a rescue cover for the Hadrian’s Wall Half Marathon. Along with the usual minor scrapes and scratches to deal with, the Team dealt with one casualty who presented themselves at Checkpoint 6 with more serious signs and symptoms.
The competitor was assessed and treated on the course by one of our Casualty Carers, before being transported to the event finish for assessment by one of the Paramedics in the Team. Advice was given should the competitor experience any worsening of their condition.
Everyone else had an injury free run in glorious sunshine.
The incident involved 6 Team members for 1 hour.
