- Team members –30 KMRT
- Duration 4 1/2 hrs or 135 man hours
Having completed a super training session earlier in the day, most team members had just arrived home when I put them on stand by. Earlier on I had received word that an exhausted walker had been spotted in the vicinity of Jacobs Ladder. A small party had been asked to go and have a look to see if the person was in need of assistance. Once found, it was obvious that more people would be needed so the team were called out and support from the RAF requested. Unfortunately a Sea King was unavailable but the police air support unit was. After a short carry to a more suitable landing zone, the walker was brought down to Hayfield, and the team were finally able to return home to their over cooked teas and burnt BBQ’s.
