June was a quiet month for the team with only three incidents recorded, two of which were linked to the same missing person.

On 9th June the team was called by YAS to assist a runner in the Wessenden area who had fallen. The casualty’s location was initially unknown but she was located quickly by the team using the description given by the casualty. Team members provided pain relief followed by stretcher evacuation back to Wessenden Head Road.

Just after midnight on the 29th June the team was asked to assist Calder Valley SRT with a search for a high risk missing person in the Ripponden area. HVMRT provided one search team who covered off a segment centred on Booth Dean Clough. Later the same day, the team was called again to assist with additional searches for the same missing person.
