2019 Incident #2: 12th January 11:50 – Hampsfell

Team called by Cumbria Police. A walker had slipped not far from the Hospice memorial on Hampsfell. Team responded and also contacted Duddon and Furness team who responded with extra hands in the event of a carry off. The casualty was treated on site for a suspected fractured humerus and fortunately was able to slowly walk down a short distance to Mobile 2. With no ambulance available (due to high call out numbers) we transferred the casualty to Furness General Hospital ourselves. Another first for our new vehicle as we proved its capabilities as an ambulance.
