Incident Report #81 2016

 A car was reported as "stuck on a cliff edge" on Wrynose Pass. This turned out to not be entirely true on a number of facts. Firstly it was on HArdknott Pass, and secondly a team member was able to reverse it back on to the road and remedy the situation. Wasdale MRT were also involved, because it was actually within their operational area, but we were already quite close by the time the correct location was identified

Incident Report #13 2015

Snowmageddon... well not really, but a multi-vehicle incident on Kirkstone Pass during a period of snowfall occupied ourselves, Patterdale MRT, police, ambulance and Fire and Rescue Service for several hours. Two injured people were released from an upturned vehicle and evacuated by stretcher to our vehicles and then transferred to ambulances waiting at lower levels. A number of other vehicles were also trapped on the pass, so their occupants were evacuated to the Kirkstone Inn

Incident Report #4 2014

A two vehicle RTC cause injuries to three people in the snow at Kirkstone Pass. We were called to assist. With an ambulance on scene, but itself also stuck, we assisted Paramedics. One person was evacuated with back injuries, using our stretcher and there were two walking wounded. Approximately 8 other people were evacuated from the road because it was blocked by the snow and crashed vehicles. It would be fair to say that the road was not in any condition to be used before the collision occurred. Patterdale MRT attended form their side of the pass as well.
