Incident 109 - Wednesday 2nd October 2019, 13:03hrs The team were called to the Padley Gorge area to assist a walker who had slipped and fallen in the river. With recent rains the paths were very muddy and slippery, and the stream had a fair bit of water flowing down it. Fortunately, the walker was assisted by other passing walkers to the bank. However, pre-existing medical issues meant they were struggling to mobilise after their impromptu dunking. The first team members on scene were able to assist the uninjured but cold walker back to the road and re-united them with the warmth of their car. After assessment by the team doctor the walker was happy to return home to dry off and warm up, uninjured but soggy!

Incident 108 - Friday 27th September 2019 16:55hrs We were alerted to an incident at the Cascades in Chatsworth House Gardens where a visitor had slipped and injured themselves. A Buxton MR team member was trying to comfort and give the person some help but with the cold and wet conditions she was concerned for the casualties welfare. The team was asked to send a vehicle and some local team members to move the casualty to warmer and drier conditions until the ambulance arrived. On the arrival of the team vehicle and two team members the ambulance had also arrived and managed to get the casualty into the EMAS ambulance so the rest of the team were stood down on route.
