Whilst the team were busy assisting the North West Ambulance Service (NWAS) in Etherow Country Park with an injured walker, see callout 14, we were contacted to assist East Midlands Ambulance Service (EMAS) with another injured walker. This time it was close to our base in the village of Hayfield.
Upon arriving at Kinder Reservoir and meeting the EMAS crew I was informed a local farmer was hoping to transport her off the hill in his Land Rover. We waited until the lady was safely transferred into the EMAS road ambulance before standing down from this incident and returning to base in order to assist those returning from the previous callout to clean and decontaminate the vehicles ready for the next callout.
A busy afternoon adding to the large number of callouts that mountain rescue teams around the Peak District have had over the last couple of weeks.
