yesterday the team were called out by Lancashire Police to a 17 y/o female who had a suspected ankle injury halfway up the steps on Pendle Hill.
Our rapid response vehicle (Mobile 2) with members on board responded directly to our RV of Pendle Hillside Farm.
After assessment and splinting with our colleagues from NWAS (one of whom is also a team member!) we stretchered the casualty down the steps to the ambulance waiting at the road ahead.
Thanks to Lancashire Police as always for their support and to the lecturers on the hill who kept the other 170 students at the trig point whilst we dealt with the casualty.
We hope she makes a quick recovery and returns to the hills again soon.
