Incident report

Team members were again requested by a different landowner to recover a sheep that had got stuck on an inaccessible ledge close to the waters edge at Erwood reservoir. Team members again set up a lowering and hoisting system and the animal was recovered unhurt. In contrast to the recent incident in Cheedale, the farmer did attend the rescue, and was most grateful, personally thanking all of the members who attended for our prompt and effective response.
We are always happy to assist the farming community, without who’s co-operation and land access, training would be impossible to arrange. It is also nice to be appreciated for these additional tasks.
