Callout 32/2020 - Avon reservoir, 15:06 5th August 2020

At approximately 14:56, team SM, was contacted to assist with locating two female walkers near Avon Dam. One walker 70yr old, had fallen and had possible lower leg injury.  The team were called out at 15:06, to RV, at Avon Dam.  Two teams with a stretcher were then sent to assist D&C Police, who were already making their way to the casualties.  Both casualties were safely evacuated from the moor. The elderly lady was treated by SWAST at Shipley Bridge car park. Weather conditions were not good and again proves that local people and visitors are still being caught out with the rapid change to weather conditions on the moor.  Both walkers were well enough to drive home in their own vehicle.  Thanks to all team members for assisting with this call out.
