Call out summary: January and February 2022

January and February saw an interesting mix of call outs for the Holme Valley Mountain Rescue team. Assisting with regional flooding, evacuating snow stranded motorists, and providing support to our neighbouring Mountain Rescue teams, Calder Valley and Oldham kept us on our toes.

Overall we had nine call outs in the period, with the first on New Year's Day, assisting the Yorkshire Ambulance Service with a cyclist who had left the road on a sharp bend and had fallen over a wall into a field.

We also dealt with various lower leg injuries through the period, as muddy conditions led to falls and slips.

Our longest call out in February was providing assistance with regional flooding on Sunday 20th February, with this incident lasting 12 hours 30 minutes.

In January our longest call out was a search for a high risk missing person conducted alongside Calder Valley Search and Rescue Team. This incident lasted 4 hours 30 minutes, commencing at 10pm and running into the early hours of the morning.
