An elderly male became separated from his wife while walking. His age and the temperature gave cause for concern. A search was organised and he was located and returned to his wife.
Day three: Local water levels have started to drop and the damage done is becoming apparent. More welfare checks, investigations in to the possibility of recovering our vehicle, and another team dispatched to Carlisle to assist with the situation there, and another overnight stint for our team leader in the region-wide coordination of the rescue effort.

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
