CALLOUT 39 – Call to assist NWAS in poor weather conditionsApril 11, 2021
CALLOUT 41 – Call to assist elderly gentlemanApril 20, 2021
The second call out of the day (11/4/21) was received from the North West Ambulance Service (NWAS) shortly before 15:30, to assist with a 9yr old who had slipped and injured themselves whilst out walking near Jamestone Quarry, off of Grane Road.
Team members confirmed the casualty’s location using phonefind technology and then made their way to the scene. The casualty was treated by team members, packaged and placed onto the Bell Stretcher before a short carry to the quarry track, and then placed onto the off-road wheel for the remaining journey back to the road.
From discussions with the casualty’s family, the NWAS assets that were allocated were stood down, and they made their own arrangements to be picked up and thus be able to make their own way to the hospital.
