CVSRT received a request from Yorkshire Ambulance Service to assist with the search and evacuation of a 49yr old man who had fallen on The Pennine Way sustaining a lower leg injury. The man was believed to be approximately 1 mile along The Pennine Way from Upper Heights Farm.

Whilst team vehicles were en-route, a local resident moved the casualty closer to the main road. Once on-scene, three local CVSRT members (who had travelled direct), assisted the ambulance crew to transfer the casualty into ambulance.

In attendance:
25 CVSRT members
Yorkshire Ambulance Service

Starting on Saturday 14th January 2017, CVSRT member's Howard Barton and Jonothan Wright, will join fellow Mountain Rescue members to compete in the 2nd Montane Spine® Mountain Rescue Challenge 2017. 

The Spine® Mountain Rescue Challenge is a 108 miles non-stop race between Edale in the Peak District, to Hawes in the Yorkshire Dales following The Pennine Way. It will run along side the Spine® Challenger and the much longer Spine® Race, which covers the entire 268 miles of The Pennine Way - dubbed ‘Britain’s Most Brutal Race’.

All funds raised from our team member's involvement in this challenge will go directly towards keeping CVSRT operational.

Calder Valley Search & Rescue Team and Oldham Mountain Rescue Team joined forces to assist a walker with breathing difficulties and chest pains. 

The gentleman was part of a walking group who were approaching the trig at Blackstone Edge when he became ill.  The casualty’s well-being is always a priority and as the location was on the border of our operational area, both teams were deployed.

Once on-scene, the casualty was treated by North West Air Ambulance (NWAA) paramedics and transferred to the helicopter by team members from Oldham MRT and CVSRT, for the onward journey to hospital:

Both teams stood down and returned to their respective base.
