Incident report

Buxton Search Dogs Megan with Dave Mason and Zak with handler Nick Smith were called together with three other Peak District SARDA dog units to assist in locating five persons reported lost on Kinder Scout. 

The timely finding of the casualties meant that four of the dog units were not deployed on to the hill but Dave Mason and Megan were well committed searching up the Grindsbrook Valley before the stand-down. 

See Team Call-out 16.
