CALLOUT 35 – Call to assist NWAS in BacupAugust 22, 2023
Yesterday evening (11/8/23 17:15) the team was contacted by Lancashire Police to assist a gentleman who had been out on Pendle and had taken a fall subsequently suffering an injury to his knee and was unable to mobilise.
The gentleman was approximately halfway up the steps from Pendle House Farm, team members made their way to the scene and met with the casualty and his companions. He was assessed by one of the team’s casualty carers.
Once the appropriate equipment had been conveyed to the scene, the casualty was provided with some pain relief, and the injured leg was splinted, before the casualty was packaged onto a stretcher. He was then conveyed with a combination of sledding and carrying to get back down to the road to meet with an ambulance for onward transportation to the hospital.
We wish the casualty a speedy recovery.
