Yesterday evening, or maybe we should say in the early this morning! (00:45 26/7/21) the team was called out for a second time to assist the North West Ambulance Service NHS Trust. This time, was to assist a casualty who was injured in a field with facial lacerations.
The team was first on scene and provided initial care until the ambulance crew arrived, we then used our specialist stretchers to extract and carry the casualty approximately 500m across the difficult ground to the waiting ambulance.
Upon further investigation, it transpired that the casualty and their partner had been involved in an RTC (Road Traffic Collision). The Police were also in attendance due to the initial nature of the report.
The team stood down and returned vehicles to the base by approximately 04:00, just in time for that debate of power nap, or power on through without sleep!
