Incident report

curbar-smallA report from East Midlands Ambulance prompted the Edale & Buxton MRT snatch squad call out pagers to sound off.  A seventy year old male walker was reported to have tripped and fractured an arm.  Members living close to area quickly arrived at Cubar Gap car park to find the man had been able to make his own way off.  The stand down was therefore sent out before most members had finished tying their boot laces.
