Incident report

Team members were meeting at The Roaches for the Thursday night training session when they were alerted to an incident at Roach End. The team quickly deployed to Roach End and carried equipment up to the casualty’s location, which was close to the trip point.

The casualty had been running along the Roaches when they fell and sustained an ankle injury. On arrival at scene the casualty was assessed, given pain relief and their leg was splinted. They were then placed in a casualty bag on a mountain rescue stretcher (which was fitted with a wheel) and carried down to the road, where they were transferred to an Officialwmas ambulance.
