Deployed with White Watch, Scarborough Station, North Yorkshire Fire & Rescue Service to reports of two casualties having fallen approximately 15 metre down vertical crags in woodland along the Deepdale side of Oliver’s Mount, Scarborough.
On arrival, and after an initial hasty brief, rope rescue equipment was set up by both services and team members were lowered to the find sites to apply immediate casualty care to each find.
Once stabilised both finds were recovered to the top of the crags for evacuation to hospital.
This time just an EXERCISE but an excellent opportunity to see the equipment we would each deploy for the real thing and share our operating procedures. It also allowed us to practice rope work and the deployment of the Larkin frame in the dark.
Many thanks for White Watch for the invite and for setting up the scenario.
