At 20:42 on Friday 31st July, CVSRT were alerted to an incident that required our assistance near the stepping-stones in Burley in Wharfedale. The incident involving a 26yo lady with a suspected broken ankle is in the operational area of our neighbouring team, Upper Wharfedale Fell Rescue Association (UWFRA), however they were already dealing with a separate incident so requested our assistance.

Ten members from CVSRT with six local UWFRA members and additional assistance from West Yorkshire Fire & Rescue Service were deployed. Once on-scene, an evacuation route was agreed and as there were enough MRT personnel to deal with the stretcher carry, it was decided to stand down the WYFRS crew. The casualty was packaged and evacuated on a wheeled stretcher to the ambulance for onward journey to hospital.

On the journey back to base via Keighley, CVSRT members in CM1 discovered an injured male on the ground who had been assaulted. No emergency services were on-scene, therefore team members pulled over to provide assistance to the casualty until the ambulance and police arrived.

At 13:33, CVSRT received a request from Yorkshire Ambulance Service to assist with the evacuation of a 31yr male who had fallen from a rope swing sustaining an open ankle fracture. Due to the location of the incident and anticipating a long stretcher carry, 12 members from CVSRT with additional members from Holme Valley Mountain Rescue Team were deployed.

Once on-scene, team members administered pain relief before packaging and evacuating the casualty from the woodland to a farm track where the ambulance was waiting. Following decontamination of all equipment and personal kit, all members stood down and returned to bases.

As vehicles arrived back at their bases, CVSRT members were alerted to a second incident at Lumb Falls, Pecket Well and immediately deployed to scene.

HVMRT members also received an alert from West Yorkshire Police to an imminent missing persons search in their operational area, therefore returned to their base ready for deployment.

Yorkshire Downhill Time Trial 2020

#Event Cancellation

Calder Valley Search & Rescue Team (CVSRT)

3rd annual Yorkshire Downhill Time Trial 2020

Due to the Government guidelines currently in force and the ongoing situation with the Coronavirus pandemic, we have made the decision to cancel this year’s Yorkshire Downhill Time Trial. This probably won’t come as a surprise to most but is nevertheless disappointing as we know how much participants have enjoyed the first two editions of the event.

Whilst some elements of the event might appear well-suited to the restrictions on fell races that are currently operating, we felt that without the opportunity to socialise between descents and at the end, the event just wouldn’t be the same! In addition, CVSRT have had their busiest year to date this year and based on current form, our resources may be required elsewhere! (In fact, for a time we were the busiest Mountain Rescue team in the country this year!)

We’d like to thank all those who have supported the event and the team recently and hope to welcome you back in 2021!

If you would like to see how you can support CVSRT please visit - https://www.cvsrt.org.uk/support-us

Also, a word of thanks to the folks at Havok Bike Park for their ongoing support and for allowing us to host the event with them for the last 3 years – Please note the MTB tracks are only open to members of Havok, to read more about the facilities they have please visit http://www.havokbikepark.com

If you’re looking for another challenge, why not try this and raise some much needed funds for CVSRT at the same time:- https://craggrunner.com/elementor-738/
