    CALLOUT and Standby, Saturday 21st May

    Written by

    After a busy morning doing weekly vehicle and kit checks the team were put on stand by at 13.35 for possible missing persons in the Widecombe area, fortunately they were located safe and well before being deployed.

    An hour and a half later the team were called again to a missing male reported to be unwell in the Piles Copse area.

    Ambulance

    On route to the RV we were informed that Police Officers had found the casualty but need assistance in getting off the moor. Both team Land Rovers then made their way along the old tramway where we found a very wet and cold casualty on the track North of Piles Copse. All involved including the finding Police Officers were then evacuated from the moor in DSRT Ashburton Land Rovers, the casualty to a waiting ambulance and Devon and Cornwall’s finest to their cars and hopefully a well earned brew.

    A good outcome in what were very poor conditions.
