CALLOUT 43 – Call to assist NWASSeptember 12, 2023
Yesterday evening (Mon 4/9/23 21:20) the team was contacted by the North West Ambulance Service NHS Trust (NWAS) to assist with an incident where someone had slipped whilst exiting a tractor in a field near Coldwell Reservoirs, Nelson.
The casualty was reported to have suffered a deep laceration to their thigh and the team was contacted with concerns of access issues to get medical attention to the casualty. Our team volunteers made their way both to our Burnley base to collect response vehicles, as well as some heading directly to the scene.
Two of our team members arrived first on the scene to find the casualty had been transported back to the road in a quad trailer and were able to provide some immediate medical attention, before very shortly thereafter being joined by the NWAS crew.
The laceration was very deep was likely very lucky to have missed femoral blood vessels. The casualty was assisted by the crew into the back of the ambulance and the remaining team members & vehicles that were en route to the incident were stood down. The casualty was assessed by the crew before being transferred to the hospital for further medical attention. We wish them a speedy recovery.
