CALLOUT: Fallen person in a quarry near Halkyn

Last night a male took a fall in a disused quarry near Halkyn. He was attended to by Welsh Ambulance Services paramedics. NEWSAR team members then extracted him by stretcher to the road for onward transport to hospital.
Get well soon.
These old quarries can be dangerous places to venture into. See the safety messages from the Stay Safe Stay Out of Quarries group.

TRAINING and social evening

Last night was our final session before we take a break from training for the month of August. Don’t worry…. we are still available for callouts!

The training consisted of a couple of simple navigation courses, mostly to stretch the legs out, before we retired to the The Druid Inn, Llanferres for some food donated by the pub – thanks for the support! We were joined by members of the Supporters Group, plus family members of team members.

We were also joined by The Mayor of Mold, Councillor Tim Maunders and Councillor Gareth Williams who had a short introduction to our mobile control vehicle and the technology we use during operations. They then went out on one of navigation courses for a walk with team members.

We nearly ended up having to go on a callout instead… see earlier post.
