Incident 21/2010

At circa 10:00 our Team Leader Garry Rhodes MBE in his co-ordinator role with NWAS (Manchester) control was contacted by despatcher Katherine, to mobilise the team to a Residential Care Home in Horwich, where an Emergency Ambulance couldn’t reach the location due to icy road conditions.

Our BM1 vehicle with crew members Elaine Gilliland, Dave Carter and Steve Nelson, alongside BM4 with Fred Taylor, Matthew Hailwood and the Manchester Evening News reporting crew all responded, but upon arrival were stood down on scene as the NWAS crew had managed to get the casualty into their vehicle.
Both vehicles returned to their Standby location at our Ladybridge Hall Base/HQ at 10:52.
