8th December proved to be a busy day for the team, with two call outs. There was a call out in the morning to assist with a search then another in the afternoon to support the Yorkshire Ambulance Service . 


We were contacted at 9.40am by West Yorkshire Police to assist with a search for a high risk missing person in the area of Blackmoorfoot Reservoir.

An initial tasking was made and an associated search plan. As the team was assembling, the missing person was found and the team was then stood down.


The Team had its second call out of the day in the afternoon, with a request from the Yorkshire Ambulance Service to assist with a casualty who had fallen near Scammonden Activity Centre.
