Starting with callout #43, we were called by NWAS to reports a lady with a suspected lower leg injury somewhere near it in Troy quarry, just off the Grane road near Haslingden.
On arrival, we sorted access for the land ambulance and the crew we able to get within a few metres of the lady, so she was assessed and quickly transferred to the hospital.
We received our second callout around 15:50 to reports of a mountain biker near Wardle reservoir who’d come of his mountain bike and lost consciousness – mobiles 1 and 2 responded.
Mobile 2 was first the arrive with mobile close behind. The members on mobile 2 assisted NWAS to get the biker to safety and for further assessment.
As mobile 1 approached our leadership we’re getting another CALLOUT coming through, this time to a horse rider who had a C spine query, nasty laceration to the back of his head and broken collarbone.
This time we responded along with HART (Hazardous Area Response Team). On arrival it was decided we were to assist in getting the casualty to safety as the track to his location was uneven and paramedics weren’t happy it wouldn’t cause further damage. Using the ‘big wheel’ and Bell stretcher 6 member safety transferred the gentleman to the ambulance waiting at the road head!
Quite a crazy period and quite luck the last 2 jobs were relatively near to each other but either way a great example of our heroes resilience, joint teamwork with our colleagues and the vast array of jobs we attend. Now back to base in the stunning spring weather to clean down and prep for the next job.
