We were called to assist East Midlands Ambulance Service (EMAS) with a collapsed male on the main path north of Kinder Reservoir on a sweltering afternoon. Hill parties were despatched to meet up with the EMAS crew who had arrived on scene to treat the casualty.
He was taken on our stretcher along the path and down to the road ambulance at the Filter House. We then returned to our base to clean and decontaminate our vehicle and equipment.
With temperatures approaching 30° our volunteers were relieved it was only by the reservoir and they hadn’t needed to ascend to the top of Kinder Scout.
