#CALLOUT On Friday 14th February at 11:58 Calder Valley Search and Rescue Team (CVSRT) received a request from Yorkshire Ambulance Service (YAS) to assist with the evacuation of a female who sustained an ankle injury whilst walking near Earl Crag.
Due to the location of the incident members from our neighbouring team, Upper Wharfedale Fell Rescue Association (UWFRA), were called upon to assist.
Members of UWFRA were first on scene providing warmth to the casualty and assessing injuries.
Following arrival of CVSRT vehicles, the casualty was provided with pain relief, packaged on to a stretcher and carried a short distance to the awaiting ambulance.
Thank you to UWFRA for their support.

#CALLOUT  On Saturday 1st February at 14:15 Calder Valley Search and Rescue Team (CVSRT) received a request from West Yorkshire Police (WYP) to assist with the evacuation of a Marshall who had become unwell whilst manning their checkpoint at #High Brown Knoll on #Midgley Moor for the Wadsworth Trog Fell Race.
Once on scene CVSRT members provided pain relief, packaged the casualty into a winter casualty bag, and transferred them on a team wheeled stretcher to the awaiting Yorkshire Ambulance Service (YAS) ambulance on #Keighley Road. 
During the above incident, race organisers also alerted the CVSRT team leader of a missing runner.  As the initial incident was concluded and a search plan formed the missing runner arrived.  The runner had taken a wrong turn along the course and was kindly driven back to our location by a local resident. 
Both incidents were concluded at 17:30, with the team returning vehicles and equipment to our bases. 
Thank you to the race organisers, Calder Valley Fell Runners, for their prompt action in calling the emergency services to assist the casualty, along with the accurate information provided.  This made planning the incident response and mobilisation of the team much easier.
