CALLOUT 44 – Call to assist NWAS near Norden, RochdaleSeptember 12, 2023
On Saturday afternoon (17:15 9/9/23) the team was called out by the North West Ambulance Service NHS Trust (NWAS) to the Rosegrove area of Burnley to assist a multi-agency response to an ongoing incident on the Leeds to Liverpool canal.
Team members were mobilised to rendezvous at our Burnley base (as only a few minutes away) whilst the duty leader went to meet with the agency leads at the scene to discuss if the team would be of assistance and if so in what way.
Our team volunteers remained at the base, standing by, however, were stood down a short time later when agreed at the multi-agency briefing along with the NWAS resources from the scene.
Unfortunately, since then it has been reported the sad news of the discovery of a body. Our thoughts are with the family and friends at this difficult time.
