Callout 34/2021 - Hembury Woods 15:37 19th November 2021 

At 1537hrs our duty search manager was contacted by Devon & Cornwall Police and asked we could assist DSFRS in the recovery of a deceased individual from a difficult location in Hembury Woods, Nr Buckfastleigh. At 1551hrs a limited callout for team members was sent.
Our team deployed nine of our volunteers, two 4X4 vehicles and a specialised stretcher in support of Devon Somerset Fire and Rescue (DSFRS).
The combined team then swiftly brought the deceased to an ambulance at the road head. Our thoughts are with the friends and family of the deceased individual.
The team were stood down within the hour of the callout.
