Incident report

The team were driving back from call out 86 and as we headed to Upper Booth Farm the radio started to chatter with news of another incident. Team Leader Neil had been driving up towards the campsite to pick up team members who were coming off the hill. He came across a group on the road and one of the party with a medical history had collapsed. We quickly responded with all kit and personnel available. We recognised the importance of the incident quickly and called for rapid evacuation by land ambulance. The team made the casualty as comfortable and secure as possible until the ambulance arrived. We then loaded the ambulance and packed up the kit for the second time. We would like to extend our thanks to the group and specifically the friend who was able to give reassurance and support to our casualty.
