On Friday 19th October at 23:25, CVSRT members were called to assist Yorkshire Ambulance Service and the YAS Hazardous Area Response Team with an incident at a residence in Eastwood Lane, Todmorden.

A 71yo male had fallen down some steps at his home and access within the house was restricted causing a challenging evacuation. The residence was also located up a steep unmade track, which made access difficult for the ambulance too. Several local team members were deployed to assist the YAS crew with the evacuation.
