Today (18/01/2021) the team have again been called out to assist a member of our community in need our help and skills once again.
Today’s request came at 11:40 this morning from the North West Ambulance Service, to a casualty with a lower leg injury near Padiham.
Team members worked alongside the ambulance crew on scene, providing some shelter and warmth, along with pain relief before splinting the injured limb. The casualty was then packaged onto the bell stretcher and evacuated about 750m to the awaiting ambulance.
