Incident report

The team was called in the early hours the morning by East Midlands Ambulance Service (EMAS) to assist with transporting a patient from a farmhouse in the Brandside area south of Buxton.

Thirteen team members attended and after wrapping the patient in an insulated casualty bag, carried the patient through snow drifts to a waiting ambulance on the nearest road. The patient was then transferred to Stepping Hill Hospital for further assessment.

Once the EMAS ambulance was safely back in Buxton, team members returned to base to sort and dry kit. Team members then returned home to catch a few hours sleep before setting off to their work as usual.
