Incident report

The second call out came in late afternoon to assist East Midlands Ambulance Service again with another incident. The team rv’d at Monsal Head.

A family group had been cycling along the Monsal Trail when one of them fell off and injured their lower leg. Team members were quickly on scene and assessed the casualty before administering pain relief. After the leg had been imobilised, the casualty was placed on a mountain rescue stretcher and carried to a team vehicle. The casualty was then driven to Millers Dale for transfer to an ambulance.

The team then cleaned and disinfected the equipment ready for the next callout.

We wish both of todays casualties speedy recoveries.
