Today we were called to assist an injured walker with a suspected broken leg on Holme Moss. After treatment at the scene the casualty was loaded into a vac mat and then onto a stretcher. Due to the difficult terrain of steep groughs, peat bogs and the distance to the road additional support had been requested from neighbouring Holme Valley Mountain Rescue Team and Glossop Mountain Rescue Team to help with the stretcher carry. The Yorkshire Air Ambulance became available for this incident reducing the stretcher carry by transferring the casualty from the moor to the waiting road ambulance.[Edit]
