TV appearance (briefly!)

We’ve had another very short TV moment again…. ITV Wales have returned to Snowdon for another 4 part series. One of the episodes covers the Snowdon International Race, held each year in July. The Llanberis Mountain Rescue Team of course cover Snowdon, but on a busy July day they often have their hands full with numerous other callouts across Snowdon. So NEWSAR and the Aberglaslyn Mountain Rescue Team provide medical cover for the race.
You can see our control vehicle and team members down in Llanberis at 4 mins and 6 seconds in.
The whole series is well worth watching, with a lot of coverage of the Llanberis team working on Snowdon across the whole year.

CALLOUT: Injured man near Corwen

Team members were called by North Wales Police on Saturday morning to assist a man who had suffered an ankle injury while out walking near Corwen. After some initial treatment by one of the teams paramedics he was assisted to our Landrover and driven down to the road. His party were then able to take him to hospital by car. Get well soon.

Edit: 8/10/19

We have been contacted by a member of the group with this photo.
Steve said “The event was run by the British Falconers Club, were a spectator lost is footing on a steep bank and fell causing damage to his left ankle. Your team of complete professionals were on the scene in no time and had the situation under control immediately.” Thanks Steve and we hope the injured gentleman is back to full fitness soon.
PS, it has to be said this is a first for us – arriving at an incident scene to be met by people with several large birds of prey!

Supporters Group Activity

Members of our Supporters Group took the opportunity to attend one of our FREE activity events this morning. We held a supervised introduction to climbing session at Pot Hole Quarry, near Llanferres.
Supporter Nigel said “I really enjoyed today’s training. I felt, that for someone who was a beginner and a bit nervous, I was always in safe hands and I think this is a really good way of introducing beginners to the Team. I learnt a lot of new skills.”
