CALLOUT 25 – Call to Assist NWASJune 4, 2023
On Thursday (01/06/23) the team was deployed at the request of the North West Ambulance Service NHS Trust (NWAS) at approximately 19.15 to assist in the extraction of casualty near Heywood.
The casualty had fallen off a mountain bike and suffered a back injury in a wooded area near a stream with difficult extraction options. Members made their way to the location, where after treatment by the ambulance service, the casualty was packaged and transported to the awaiting ambulance and then to the hospital for further treatment.
Special thanks to our new trainees who diverted from their planned training session to come and assist.
