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

Norske Folkenhjelp

Posted on Sun, 01/06/2014 - 14:17

Fifteen members of the Norske Folkenhjelp spent two of their three days in England with us. On Thursday we showed them round our base, demonstrated some of our gear and explained how we worked. Some ventured up Helvellyn and on to Striding Edge to sample English mountain walking at its finest. On Saturday we organised a mock rescue exercise for them to take part in. A 'casualty' was treated and evacuated from steep ground high above Kirkstone Pass, and a wide range of our medical kit and technical kit was used.
