Incident 14/2008

As part of NWAS (GMA) pre arranged plan to cope with peak demand calls on this festive season night, the Team was mobilised to directly assist NWAS (GMA) with ambulance calls throughout the evening, alongside our colleagues in the St John Ambulance Brigade.

11 Team members mobilised to crew our control function, setup at our Ladybridge Hall base and 3 Team vehicles placed at the disposal of NWAS (GMA).

Team members were available from 19:00 Hrs New Year’s Eve, with the first job of 2008 being tasked at 00:18 Hrs (Our Incident 1/2008). The last job came in at 05:30 Hrs (Our Incident 14/2008) on the morning of New Year’s Day.

Following debrief, restocking of vehicles contents and a general tidy up Team members finally closed our base at 07:45 Hrs New Year’s Day morning.

In total 1 Code Purple, 4 Code Red, 6 Code Amber & 3 Code Green calls were dealt with (Its probably stating the obvious to comment that some of the incidents were drink related)

Yet again we would like to place on record, our grateful thanks to all at NWAS PEC for their tremendous support and assistance during the evening. Similar thanks are extended to the NWAS RRV Crews & general Emergency Ambulance crews we worked alongside.

Finally, all members present on the night would like to extend their grateful thanks to Team Support Members Johanne Bentley, Mandy Aspinall & Carol Carey, who provided a variety of excellent cooked food throughout the evening, alongside a continual supply of hot drinks (Without such background support, the frontline operations of the Team would be much less effective.)
