This week has seen KMRT respond to a record number of callouts within a single week. As of 15:00 on Friday 8 January 2010 the team has already responded to 19 incidents.
It may have stopped snowing but with gritters and snowploughs still working hard to keep major routes clear of drifts, minor roads remained impassable to normal ambulances.
Another busy day!
Whilst some may be enjoying the wintry conditions across the North, the continuation of snow, ice and cold temperatures into the New Year has increased the pressure on ambulance services.
The forecast last night had been for snow and lots of it. Boy were they right. I woke up to find my wife and kids all eagerly looking out of the window to see how many cars were getting down the hill outside our house.
