In the early hours of this morning the team was contacted by North Wales Police regarding a missing teenager from the Hope area near Wrexham. As initial work was taking place the good news came in that NWP officers had found the missing person safe and well. SARDA Wales also deployed a dog team.

CALLOUT: Earlier this evening North Wales Police called us to assist Welsh Ambulance Services NHS Trust to evacuate an injured mountain biker in Clocaenog forest. Two team vehicles and around twenty team members attended the scene.
It was an awkward, very muddy and slippery location, in the trees and on steep ground. So after carefully putting the casualty on our stretcher we used a rope system to protect the lower down to our waiting Landrover. After that it was a short drive to hand over to the WAST Ambulance so they could get to hospital.
Get well soon.

We had our first callout of 2020 today. We were asked to assist Welsh Ambulance Services NHS Trust to move an injured person. The location was in the hills south of Abergele. While we were on the way we were notified that more local resources had become available and we stood down.
Get well soon.
