ALERT Only – Nov. 19th Thu. 14.36 – Gisburn Forest, Lancashire, Alert No. 8 of 2020

A ringing smartphone

Bowland Pennine MRT asked for CRO’s support when they found themselves short-handed on the way to an incident in Gisburn Forest. A cyclist (m, 30) had come off his mountain bike, sustaining a shoulder injury. However, as a CRO controller was texting a call-out to team members, NWAS advised that the patient had been able to make his way to the main car park at Stephen Park (‘the Forest Hub’), so a call-out was not needed.
