Incident 39/2010

At 11.04hrs this morning the team was paged by NWAS (Manchester) as part of a request to send Mountain Rescue resources into West Yorkshire, to assist Yorkshire Ambulance Service due to adverse wintry conditions affecting the West Yorkshire region.

NWAS (Manchester) also called upon our colleagues in Oldham MRT and Rossendale and Pendle MRT amongst other teams to lend similar assistance.

A full team page was made at 11.12hrs with further details available, resulting in the Bolton MRT deploying one vehicle, BM1 Into West Yorkshire crewed by Fred Taylor, Chris Tennant and Matthew Hailwood.

Initially at the direction of NWAS (Manchester) and then under the control of Yorkshire Ambulance Service, our vehicle was asked to stand by at the junction of the M62 and the A640.

At circa 13.50hrs with the situation easing in West Yorkshire, our vehicle was stood down and returned to the Bolton area.
