Real incident interrupts Buxton team training

Incident No: 39.   
Thursday evening is the team's regular training night and this Thursday (29/06) was no exception with the team dealing with a simulated injured climber on Hen Cloud near The Roaches.  Training was coming to a conclusion when at 10.00 p.m. the team received information of an injured man on the Monsal Trail.
Packing up wet ropes a little quicker than usual, twenty-four members made their way to the rendezvous point at Miller's Dale Station.  From there members were ferried in to the site by team vehicles.  However, the casualty, a 36 year old man from Sheffield, had made his own down way onto the trail from the accident site at the top of a steep embankment.  The man had suffered a potential dislocated shoulder when he slipped on the wet limestone.
Team paramedics tendered to the man's injury which included the administration pain killing drugs.  By now, most team members had stood down and returned to sorting wet climbing kit leaving just few to guide an East Midlands Ambulance to the casualty site and assist with loading the stretcher.
Incident No: 40.
At 2.00 p.m. on Friday 30th June Buxton Mountain Rescue Team was called by Derbyshire police following the report of an injured walker on a public footpath at Dam Cliff near to Limestone Farm at Peak Forest.
The mature lady was one of an organised of group of walkers which was nearly at the end of its day's walk when the accident occurred.  She slipped whilst negotiating a stile and suffered a twisted knee.  The first team members arriving were able to take a vehicle virtually to the incident site where the injury was assessed.  The lady was then placed in a team vehicle for the short journey to the road-head where the group member's cars were parked.  The casualty was advised to seek further medical assistance from a local hospital.
