A busy afternoon for the team, with two further call outs meaning we’ve now had 6 in as many days.
CALL OUT 32
The first call out came to the team at approximately 1430 this afternoon to a motocross rider who had come off his bike in Cowm Quarry, Whitworth. A couple of local team members were soon on scene. The North West Air Ambulance was also tasked and landed within approximately 50m of a casualty shortly followed by the arrival of our team vehicle and further team members.
Ultimately the air ambulance was used for extraction and the majority of the team redeployed to the second incident whilst a few remained to assist the crew with the short carry to safely get the casualty to the helicopter.
The Rossendale & Pendle Mountain Rescue Team is a fully voluntary organisation which responds to those in need in our local community. The Team is on-call 24 hours a day, 365 days a year and relies entirely on donations from members of the public to carry out this essential life-saving rescue service.
