Incident report

Buxton Edale snatch squad called to evacuate a 48 year old female from Sheffield who slipped on the muddy path and sustained a fracture to the ankle. The casualty was treated on site by team members before being evacuated by stretcher to the roadhead. Due to very heavy workloads, EMAS did not have any road ambulances available and the casualty was transported to hospital using Buxton Mobile 2, its first stretcher case.
