Callouts 2014

Dunkery Beacon, Somerset

South West Ambulance Service had received a call asking for an ambulance and mountain rescue at an exact location on Dunkery Beacon. On arrival at the scene Team members found an injured mountain biker being treated by a SWAS crew. The Team assisted with the stretcher off the hill back to the waiting ambulance.

A quick resolution to the incident was possible partly because a young member of the group was carrying a map and knew how to give a grid ref and had the presence of mind to tell the emergency services that the Team would be required to evacuate the casualty.
