Just as the team settled down for this evening’s weekly training session, the phone rang. The call was an urgent request from Yorkshire Ambulance Service (YAS) for assistance with locating and evacuating a casualty, believed to be an injured dog walker who had sustained a lower leg injury and was somewhere on moorland above Ogden Reservoir. CVSRT deployed immediately.

The National Police Air Service helicopter (NPAS_CarrGate) assisted with the search to pinpoint the location of the young man and his two dogs, and then guided West Yorkshire Police (WYP), Yorkshire Ambulance Service (YAS) and team members to his location.

Due to the steep ground terrain and stormy wintery conditions, the casualty was quickly packaged into a winter casualty bag and promptly evacuated by stretcher to higher flat ground and the safety of our Land Rover Defender 110 (CM2), which transported him off the moors to the waiting land ambulance.

At 21:20 the team stood down and returned to base.
