Incident 11/2010

At 00:20, at the conclusion of the previous incident, our Team Leader was contacted direct by NWAS (Manchester) Control for the team’s assistance to recover an emergency ambulance stuck in deep snow in the Billinge area, in continuing heavy snowfall.

As no casualty was involved, and it was a simple vehicle recovery, our BM2 vehicle with team members Craig Lamb and Fred Taylor responded and utilising the vehicle winch managed to recover the ambulance back to better road conditions (nontheless this simple operation took two hours 40 minutes to complete).
