Incident #1293

At 15:35 on Saturday 17th October Calder Valley Search and Rescue Team (CVSRT) received a request from Yorkshire Ambulance Service (YAS) to assist with the evacuation of two females who had fallen from their horses whilst out riding near Clockface Quarry, Scammonden Bridge. 
CVSRT and a member of UWFRA were first on scene and provided initial medical care. 
Due to the potential for two stretcher evacuations a call was made to our neighbouring team, Holme Valley Mountain Rescue Team (HVMRT), to be placed on standby should we need additional assistance. 
The first casualty had suffered a head injury and was in some pain, whilst the second casualty had suffered a leg injury. 
Following further treatment and assessment by team members, including a team paramedic, one casualty was able to be assisted off the hill on foot and the second casualty was packaged onto a stretcher and carried to the awaiting ambulance. 
HVMRT members were not required and were stood down. Thank you for being available to assist.
