Incident 73/2011

This morning after a very severe frost and overnight snowfalls, the team was paged at 08.05hrs by NWAS (Lancashire) Emergency Control Centre, to assist an Emergency Ambulance crew gain access to a domestic address in Darwen, where a male elderly casualty required treatment and wintry road conditions prevented the crew getting their Ambulance close to the address.

A fully detailed pager call at 08.12hrs led to twelve team members responding to the scene, including our first members who arrived at 08.45hrs, and two of our Land Rover Mountain Rescue Ambulances arriving on scene at 08.55hrs and 08.57hrs.

At this stage with a further ten team members still responding, the team was stood down on scene, as the casualties condition had stabilised and transfer to hospital was no longer required.
