CVSRT - Sunday, 15 November 2020


15 Nov 2020
At 11:23 on Thursday 12th November 2020 Calder Valley Search and Rescue Team (CVSRT) received a request from Yorkshire Ambulance Service (YAS) to assist with a 76 year old male who had suffered an ankle injury whilst out walking near Pecket Well.
CVSRT were first on scene and provided initial medical care and pain relief.  The injured ankle was then splinted and the casualty was packaged and evacuated to the awaiting ambulance. 
Thank you to Holme Valley Mountain Rescue Team (HVMRT) who placed their team on standby in the event we required their assistance.

CVSRT are currently experiencing a quiet period of team callouts, however, even during this the team are regularly involved in incidents that do not result in a full team call out.
Over the last few weeks our leaders have been called to assist the police with two missing persons searches. Thankfully on both occasions the person was located before our full team was called to assist.
We also recently supported a neighbouring team in assisting with a further ongoing search for a missing person.  This assistance over 2 separate days involved CVSRT providing Bolton Mountain Rescue Team (BMRT) dedicated Search dog teams (each team includes a search dog, handler and navigator) to work along side BMRT members to search specific areas identified. 
All of the above instances highlight the dedication of all Mountain Rescue England and Wales Teams across the country as we support our emergency services and each other when called upon.
