Whilst 22 team members were en route to assist with an incident at Brontë Falls near Haworth, a second callout was received from the Ambulance Control Centre asking for assistance with a 72yo gentleman, who had fallen in a wooded area near Bingley.

At this point, Calder Mobiles 2 & 3, along with 12 members carried on to the Brontë Falls incident, whilst Mobile 1 with 10 members diverted to the Bingley incident, utilising Mobile 3 once the crew had been dropped off. 

Once on-scene, team members assisted the ambulance crew to treat the gentleman for hypothermia and a head injury, before packaging and evacuating the casualty to the ambulance waiting nearby. At 14:45, the full team stood down and returned to base, and then onward to their homes.

Quick thinking and prompt actions made for two successful simultaneous rescues. Read more about Incident #991 Brontë Falls.
