Incident #1394

At 12:11 on Wednesday 8th September 2021 Calder Valley Search and Rescue Team (CVSRT) received a request from Yorkshire Ambulance Service (YAS) to assist with the evacuation of a female who had fallen down a steep bank whilst out walking near Gorpley Reservoir.
YAS were first on scene and provided initial medical care and pain relief.  Upon arrival of CVSRT the casualty was placed into an immobilising vacuum mattress, onto a wheeled stretcher and carried out of the woods along a narrow path to the awaiting ambulance.
Thank you to the Yorkshire Water colleague who provided assistance in accessing the area.
