Incident 122 - Wednesday 27th November 2018 14:06 A mid afternoon request from Derbyshire Constabulary to a walker who had slipped in very muddy conditions and injured their ankle. The walker was part of an organised walking group and was unable to move out of Abney Clough due to a very painful injury. First team members were on scene within twenty minutes of the initial callout and were able to give primary care. As other team members arrived on scene with team kit, the casualty was secured on to a mountain rescue stretcher and protected from the worsening weather in a special insulated casualty bag. It was a very muddy carry back out of the Clough to the road head where we waited for the ambulance crew under a shelter tent. We get as many people in to the tent as possible to help generate heat to try and improve the casualties temperature. Thank you to the local traffic for understanding the predicament with our vehicles causing a bit of a bottle neck on the Abney road but with a bit of patience we all got there. The casualty was conveyed to Chesterfield Royal Hospital by East Midlands Ambulance Service for X-rays and further care.

Incident 121 Monday 18th November 2019 17.50 A request was received from Derbyshire police, through the regional controller, to assist some benighted walkers in the "Walkers Clough" area on the east side of the Upper Derwent Reservoir. The Regional controller had managed to contact the walkers and use "Phone Find" technology to get a location for them. He managed to point them in the right direction to use their limited lighting to find their way down to the road. A section of team members, in a team landrover headed "Up The Derwent" to make sure the walkers got down ok, particularly as the temperature was dropping fast. The walkers managed to get back themselves back to their car, so Mountain Rescue Boots Didn't get muddy. A good outcome.
