Near Brandside, Axe Edge two people became stranded on sheet ice after leaving the A53. Team members wearing microspikes walked the couple to Mobiles one and four before they were transferred to the team’s Staden Lane Base at Buxton Fire Station. The couple and their dogs were then taken in Mobile 2 to stay with relatives in the area.
As a result of being unable to travel further safely due to the ice, the lady was left without her prescribed medication. The team called into Clowes Chemist on Cavendish Parade in Buxton, who helped and issued an emergency prescription.
Many thanks to Clowes Chemist and of course our rescue volunteers.
