HVMRT was called at 14:00 on 19th September to assist Yorkshire Ambulance Service with a lady who had suffered a knee injury while walking the Pennine Way over Black Hill. 

On the evening of 27th August, HVMRT was called to its 60th Incident so far this year - to assist West Yorkshire Police with the search for a young man missing from his home in Leeds.

We joined Calder Valley Search & Rescue Team to assist Yorkshire Ambulance Service with a casualty on the moors near Green Withens who had a lower leg injury.

The Holme Valley Mountain Rescue Team received two call outs on the 7th August 2018: a search for a high risk missing person, followed by assisting the Yorkshire Ambulance Service with a teenager with a lower leg injury.

At about 16:30 on 8th July, HVMRT was mobilised to support Oldham Mountain Rescue Team and Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service with an outbreak of moorland fire above Dowry Reservoir.

Our 50th call of 2018, last night, was also one of our most unusual. At 1am the team was called by Yorkshire Ambulance Service to assist with locating a couple who had left a rock concert at Temple Newsam, Leeds, and then misplaced themselves somewhere in the country park.

We were called out at 19.13 by West Yorkshire Police to help search for a suicidal 13 year old female in the Allerton Bywater area.

Shortly after returning from our first callout of the day we were contacted again by the Yorkshire Ambulance Service to assist with a boy who had fallen off a rope swing in woods near Middlestown.
