The team would like to welcome a brand new member... Willow is our new four-legged recruit who is embarking on the beginning of her long training period to become a Mountain Rescue Search Dogs England search dog.

January was a fairly quiet month for the team, with only three call outs, two of which were to assist West Yorkshire Police with high-risk missing persons searches.

November and December saw ten call outs for the Holme Valley Mountain Rescue Team, including a Christmas Eve search for a missing person in Huddersfield.

September and October 2019 saw eight call outs in total: four in September and four in October. Half of them were to support the Police and half were to assist the Yorkshire Ambulance Service.

Following a break-in which happened during the Summer the Holme Valley Mountain Rescue Team was approached by Carlton Alarms with the offer of the donation of an alarm system for our HQ building.

The Holme Valley Mountain Rescue Team would like to express its immense gratitude to West Yorkshire Police chiefs who came together to donate £30,000 to help us buy and equip a new Mobile Incident Control Vehicle.

August was a busy month for the team, with nine call outs, including a major incident stand-by to support the Toddbrook Reservoir crisis.

July was another quiet month for the team with only two incidents recorded, both in the first week of the month.
