At 16:31 today, CVSRT received a request from Yorkshire Ambulance Service to assist with the evacuation of a lady who had fallen on a steep muddy slope whilst dog walking at Centre Vale Park in Todmorden. A local YAS Rapid Response Vehicle was first on-scene and called for back up.

Once on-scene, a CVSRT doctor worked along side the ambulance crew to administer pain relief and splinted the casualty’s injured leg and then packaged her in a winter casualty bag. The lady was then transferred a short distance on a stretcher by the team to the ambulance for further treatment and onward journey to hospital.
