What Is An Incident ?Incident

The Team is required to log details of all incidents attended and report them to the Mountain Rescue Council of England and Wales. Incidents tend to fall into three categories:

  1. A Search – the Team is called out by the Police (or another Team) to search for a person or persons reported missing.
  2. A Rescue – the Team is called to assist the Ambulance Service in evacuating a patient from a remote or inaccessible location.
  3. Event Cover – the Team has on occasion assisted other organisations who run outdoors events in our area. We provide communication and search/rescue support for the event.

The incident summaries for each year will give you an idea of the sorts of things we deal with on a regular basis.

As you’ll see we come across a wide range of problems, and our training and equipment is continually evolving to cope with an ever-increasing workload.
