CALLOUT 08 – Call to Assist Person Missing on PendleMarch 12, 2023
Sure enough, as expected with the weather the team was deployed once again this morning. At around 09:15 following a discussion with Patient Transport Control, we had a small team our volunteers deployed for several hours – this time to extract a casualty requiring ongoing treatment at the hospital.
The team initially tried to gain access with our Hilux, but once again the conditions and drifting snow were too much that they backed off. To return shortly later with the tracked Polaris to ensure the patient could be retrieved safely and handed over to PTS (Patient Transport Service). The team members stood down and returned vehicles to the base shortly before 15:00.
Due to the conditions, it was agreed the patient would be admitted to care until conditions improve for them to have access to their regular treatments.
