Incident report

 A Monday mid morning call out for the team to assist a female who was walking with a group in the Earl Sterndale area. The lady started to feel unwell and could not continue with the planned walk.

Due to the location, the Derbyshire, Leicestershire & Rutland Air Ambulance was also called along with East Midlands Ambulance Service.

After being assessed and treated by paramedics, team members then placed the casualty in a vacuum mattress and wrapped her in a casualty bag before placing her on a mountain rescue stretcher.

The casualty was then carried across a muddy field to the road and waiting ambulance, for onward transport to hospital.

Team members either returned to their day jobs, or went back to base to help clean the equipment, ready for the next call out.
