Incident 136/2007

Late this afternoon our Team Leader was contacted by NWAS (Greater Manchester Area) who requested the team’s assistance as part of their step-up resource plan given a high incident loading on their immediate resources available.

Two Bolton MRT Landrover ambulances were put at the disposal of NWAS (GMA) and 3 incidents were dealt with (one each of code Red, Amber and Green) until the team was stood down at 18:31, upon the news that the high demand on the ambulance service resources had eased.

The incidents were attended in the Bolton area, entailing persons fitting, falls at home, and a head injury.

The team, is happy to support our local communities when NWAS is faced with these Peak Demand situations entailing the implementation of their step-up resource plan.

As usual our thanks are expressed to those NWAS Emergency Ambulance and response crews we worked alongside during the night.

Thanks are also expressed, again as usual, to our unsung friends at Belle Vue Paramedic Emergency Control, who ensure we get to the right location with the right information every time.
