CVSRT - Saturday, 08 August 2020
At 19:54 on Saturday 8th August 2020 CVSRT received a request from Yorkshire Ambulance Service (YAS) to assist with the evacuation of a female who had fallen whilst out walking in Sutcliffe Wood.
 
CVSRT were first on scene and provided initial medical care. The casualty was then immobilised in a vacuum mattress and placed onto a stretcher. Due to the steep terrain of the woods a safety rope system was set up, attached to the stretcher and the casualty was transferred out of the wood and to the awaiting ambulance.
 
The team would like to thank a local resident who allowed the team to use his land to park our vehicles, set up a control point and decontamination area and also arranged for a gate to be unlocked allowing a safer evacuation route of the casualty.
