A busy day today for the team. We assembled early for some training with the MCA’s S-92 helicopter, but unfortunately the morning’s poor weather meant a postponement to the afternoon. Some team members took advantage of the free time for off-road driving practice.
As the team were departing for the re-scheduled training, we were paged by Cumbria Police with a report of a walker needing assistance near Ashes Lane just outside Kendal. We were able to quickly divert and assist the casualty, treating a suspected lower leg break and transferring them to an ambulance.
