CALLOUT 21 – Call to Assist Injured Injured WalkerMay 20, 2023
Yesterday evening (17/5/23) at approximately 18:00, shortly before we were meant to begin our weekly training the team was contacted to assist the North West Ambulance Service NHS Trust with an injured mountain biker.
The team was deployed and volunteers mobilised towards Ramsbottom, including two response vehicles from our base. The casualty was a 13yr old who had fallen from their bike. As team volunteers arrived on the scene they were met by family members and directed to the scene, where our medics treated the casualty and were able to provide pain relief before packaging and carrying the casualty to the road using the bell stretcher and wheel to wait for an ambulance for onwards transportation to hospital.
We wish the young casualty a speedy recovery.
