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.

#CALLOUT At 21:45 yesterday, Calder Valley Search & Rescue Team received a request from Yorkshire Ambulance Service (YAS) to assist with location and evacuation of an injured female on steep ground in Colden Clough, Hebden Bridge.

Fifteen CVSRT members were available to respond immediately and deployed in team vehicles or directly to the incident.

On arrival at the scene CVSRT members joined West Yorkshire Police officers in undertaking a rapid path search for the casualty, which, assisted by the National Police Air Service, was successful within 18 minutes.

The casualty was then assessed by CVSRT members and YAS Hazardous Area Response Team Paramedics. Following on-scene treatment the casualty was packaged and placed on a stretcher which had been lowered down the steep slope using a rope rescue system established by all agencies present – at this point it had become a full multi-agency response with West Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service also in attendance.

The rope rescue system was then used to haul the stretcher up a steep slope to safe ground above and carried 1.5 kilometres to a YAS ambulance crew waiting at the nearest road head. 

Following stand-down of the incident team members returned with vehicles to the Rescue Post to sort, wash and repack kit, finally heading home at 02:45.

At 16:09 today CVSRT received the second request of the weekend - to assist Yorkshire Ambulance Service with an incident at Otley Chevin. Twenty-one CVSRT members mobilised to the incident, however, stand-down was received en route.
