Yesterday one of our Land Rover Ambulances had new set of rear shock absorbers. Our vehicles are on standby, fully loaded with life saving equipment 24 hours a day. We are very grateful to Auto Defiance Ltd and Tarmac for their continued support. Without them we wouldn’t be able to carry out essential maintenance so quickly.

We were tasked on Thursday afternoon to assist a local lady near the summit of Moel Famau. She had suffered a serious lower leg injury
The initial call came from a passing member of the public who also stayed with the casualty to help until after we arrived. Thank you to them and the rest of their group for their help.
The team carried out initial treatment, including splinting the leg and providing pain relief. She was driven directly to hospital in Wrexham.
We also transported her two children down to be handed over to a family member who came along to pick them up.
Get well soon.

Lots of coverage on the search last night in Rhos on Sea alongside Search and SARDA Wales.
Mountain Rescue is so much more than just about mountains. Missing person searches, flood rescue, assisting the ambulance service with hard to reach patients, assistance in severe weather. Just some of the things we do beyond helping people in the hills and mountains.
We are there for the people of our own communities when they need us most.
