Two years ago, we brought you the story of Amelia, a special little girl who raised an incredible £1600 for CVSRT and the Little Princess Trust.  Amelia and her family are well known to CVSRT, as her dad Richard was a team member until he sadly lost his battle with cancer in 2018.

 

As in 2018, Amelia is having her luscious locks cut and will be donating her hair to the Little Princess Trust who create wigs for children and young people suffering the devastating effects of hair loss. Her last haircut, two years ago, was her first haircut for charity and Amelia has been growing her hair ever since, and this year she would like to raise money for CVSRT, in memory of her Daddy, Richard.

 

It is coming up to two years since Richard lost his life to cancer. He is missed as much as ever by his family, all his friends and the community. Richard was a devoted member of CVSRT, a 100% voluntary charity providing an essential, life-saving emergency service to the people of Calder Valley and beyond. We are sure Amelia and the rest of Richards family and friends would be very grateful of any support you can offer.

Calder Valley Search and Rescue Team stand behind the message asking people to Stay Home and Stay Safe. We do, however, understand that people need to venture outside for all manner of reasons.

We also understand that throughout this pandemic we will be asked to assist the emergency services. The driving factors for all of the extra precautions ourselves and all the Mountain Rescue Teams are taking are to look out for the safety and wellbeing of our volunteers whilst maintaining the ability to remain operational and take care of the safety and wellbeing of all casualties in need of our help.

There are many reasons why someone may have an accident and require assistance and many of them are not the result of an individual being reckless, under prepared or taking unnecessary risks.

We have never and will never judge those in need and will always be available when called upon and we share our stories, not to be critical, but to simply raise awareness of what CVSRT does in the community.

We currently live in strange times with emotions running high and during this lockdown we are seeing an increased amount of activity on social media.

Social media can be an amazing platform and what we need more than ever in these testing times is for it to be filled with kindness, compassion and understanding.

Yes, please be safe but also remember if you do need help, we are all here to provide it.

Finally a thank you to the kind person(s) who left the stone (pictured) at our base in Mytholmroyd.

#CALLOUT On Friday 10th April at 14:36 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 suffered a lower leg injury in Hollins Wood.
Following our revised callout protocol in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, a quick assessment of the request was completed and a selected group of CVSRT members were mobilised. 
 
Team members were kitted out with the relevant Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and adhered to all recommended precautions, to further safeguard against the COVID-19 virus, whilst dealing with the casualty.  YAS provided pain relief and placed the injured leg in a splint and CVSRT packaged the casualty onto a stretcher and carried them to the awaiting ambulance.
 
Once the casualty was transferred into the ambulance CVSRT completed a decontamination process on all equipment used before leaving site.
