Mountain Rescue and the Tour de France

Given the route of this weekends Tour de France, a great many Mountain Rescue Teams have been mobilised to cover various aspects of spectator safety along the upland route on Saturday and Sunday.

Details can be found on our national MREW website of the many MRTs involved.

Locally our neighbours at Rossendale and Pendle MRT are assisting their neighbours at Calder Valley SRT on Sunday, whilst our friends at Oldham MRT have members on standby at their Base / HQ should they be required on Sunday.
