Just before midnight Friday night (13/03/2020) the team was called to assist Lancashire Fire and Rescue Service with the extraction of a casualty from a difficult location.
Team members made there way to the location as well as deploying one of our response vehicles to join emergency services on scene to provide additional specialist equipment.
As members were on scene and team vehicles arriving the Fire Service’s specialist rope team had also been mobilised and successfully extracted the casualty.
Wishing the casualty a speedy recovery.
