Incident Report #69 2012

A 69-year-old male walker was reported overdue from a walk in the Far Easedale area. He was reported as experienced and capable, and unlikely to get lost. He was known to have a potentially serious and rare medical condition. A search was organised, with help from Keswick MRT, search dogs and a Seaking SAR helicopter from Boulmer. He was located near Calf Crag, on his planned route but immobilised by a leg injury. He had no mobile signal, and had been unable to call for help. It's unfortunate that he wasn't spotted by other walkers, because he wasn't far from a popular path.
Man Hours
14 team members for 5.5 hours, plus Keswick and Kendal MRT, SARDA and RAF Boulmer

Incident Report #18 2012

A couple became disorientated on the ridge between Calf Crag and Gibson Knott after what was probably an over-ambitious walk from Buttermere. They were given directions and advice, but still made very slow progress. A team vehicle was dispatched to provide a blue light to aim for in the valley and a team member walked up to meet them, and assist with luggage!

Incident Report #105 2011

A woman slipped on wet ground and sustained an upper arm injury... the third of the day! With team members already committed to previous rescues we called upon the RAF to assist. A mongrel team made up of LAMRT, Kendal MRT, a couple of membes of UWFRT and Cleveland MRT and the RAF recovered this casualty from Calf Crag. It's a fair trek! There ends a busy years...

Man Hours
9 team members for 5 hours, plus Kendal MRT, RAF Leeming MRT, plus two others from UWFRT and Cleveland MRT
