Due to the great support from everybody it has been almost 2 months since our last call out. On behalf of all the team thank you to all those whom have followed government advice during this difficult time.

Not all of our call outs are mountain related and from time to time we are tasked in support of the Ambulance crews. So last Friday the team was called out to help a lady who had injured herself whilst taking her daily exercise local to her home. The team helped the Ambulance crew to safely transport the lady to the nearest road where she was the transferred to an Ambulance and taken to hospital.

The casualty had been assessed at scene and was considered low risk from COVID-19. However, due to the risk of people being asymptomatic, we use PPE when in close proximity to protect both the casualty and the team members.

Incident started at 13:42 and ended at 17:01 making 3.3 hrs in total. There were 9 Wasdale team members involved and the incident occured at NY081027. Total rescuer hours: 30
