Incident 24/2010

At 11:55 NWAS (Manchester) Control directly tasked our BM1 vehicle, with three crew on board, to an incident in Breightmet, Bolton, where an Emergency Ambulance was stuck on snow and icy road conditions outside a residential address where a female casualty was experiencing breathing difficulties.

Our BM1 crew managed to winch the Emergency Ambulance to better road conditions, and stood by whilst the NWAS crew continued to treat the casualty in her home, in case hospital transfer was required and the casualty needed to be assisted to the Ambulance.

Thankfully the casualty responded well to her treatment and recovered so as not to need hospital transfer.

Kinder MRT (based in Hayfield on the edge of the Peak District) was also called to this incident, and stood down on scene.
