CALL OUT 9 – Call to assist NWAS in poor weather conditionsJanuary 8, 2021
CALL OUT 12 – Call to assist Lancashire PoliceJanuary 13, 2021
CALL OUTS 10 & 11
Today the madness of the New Year continues, our 11th call out in 9 days! The team have been mobilised twice early this afternoon, and as always continues to be on call 24/7 to assist throughout the community.
#10 The first call (#10) was a request from the North West Ambulance Service at 12:30 today (9/1/21) for the use of one of our specialist stretchers (MIBS) to extract a casualty from a property near Scott Park in Burnley. The paramedic on the scene (also a team member) had requested this additional support from the team due to the nature of the casualty and getting them to the ambulance as safely as possible.
#11 Shortly over an hour later, at 13:35 a second request (#11) was made to assist with an elderly casualty who had fallen down the stairs at a property on the moors just off the A56 near Accrington. He had reportedly been there since the previous evening and unable to move. Deep snow and narrow lanes again meant the teams 4×4 vehicles were used for access to the property.
Team members and the team doctor provided treatment to the casualty before packaging them in the vacuum mattress and then transporting them to the awaiting ambulance (surprisingly enough the same team member/paramedic as the previous job as well!).
