This morning (18/10/2020) brought the third call out so far this weekend. Unfortunately, this meant no Sunday morning lie-in, and even missing out on their coffee and breakfast for some of the team!
Just before 9 am, we were requested by the North West Ambulance Service to assist with a casualty who had suffered from a seizure in Lee Mill Quarry.
As team members arrived on scene the casualty was unresponsive, but fortunately did slowly begin to regain consciousness. Medical observations were taken and they were placed into one of our cas bags (big warm sleeping bag) before being placed onto the Bell Stretcher and wheel for a walk down through the quarry to the awaiting ambulance for further treatment.
A quick note of thanks to the passers-by who initially assisted the group as well as helped to direct the team to their location.
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.
