Incident report

A family group was out enjoying the sunshine on Sunday afternoon when one of them stumbled and fell over, injuring their arm and leg. Despite other members of the group helping the casualty, they were unable to continue on their walk, and called 999.

East Midlands Ambulance Service attended the incident and gave medical d treatment to the injured person. However, due to the location, EMAS requested our assistance to help get the casualty to the nearest road.

On arrival, the team transferred the casualty to a mountain rescue stretcher, and then transported them across the fields to the road, and awaiting ambulance.

Team equipment was then given a thorough clean, as per our Covid-19 protocols, and packed back on to the vehicles for return to base.

We wish the casualty a quick recovery and hope they soon get out and about around the hills again.
