Incident 100/2009

Well in the past we have organised a call out (search) on Christmas Day (for Boxing Day) and we’ve been put on stand by on Christmas Day, see details for last year, but never in the teams history have we actually been called out on Christmas Day until this evening that is !

With continuing wintry road conditions and treacherous iced up roads across a great part of Greater Manchester, at 22.44hrs this evening we were called out to the Kitt Green area of Wigan, where an Ambulance responding to an emergency call was stuck on an icy road. (NWAS Manchester)

One Team vehicle responded along with directly responding team members.
We were stood down responding when the ambulance crew and vehicle managed to self recover. Eight team members responded to this call out.
