33: Callout Thursday 1st November 2012
- Type – Collapsed Walker
- Location – Edale Rocks area of Plateau
- Team members – 24 KMRT plus Glossop MRT and Rescue 128 RAF Sea King
- Duration 4 Hours or 96 man hours for KMRT
We were called to evacuate a walker who had collapsed up on the plateau. The team was called but due to holidays and the time of day, we were getting a low turn out. Back up was requested from Glossop MRT to assist in a stretcher carry off. However, due to the condition of the casualty, air support was also requested. We were fortunate to get assistance from Rescue 128, based at Leconfield – crewed by some of the RAF chaps we had trained with earlier in the year. It picked up our casualty and dropped him down to Hayfield where he was transferred into an EMAS ambulance.
