Busy time for the team

The team has had a busy time in recent weeks.  Callouts have included:

Supporting Gloucestershire Police to find a missing 85 year old male. The male was found, having had a fall, and treated by one of the team.

An incident was on the Sugar Loaf, where a walker who had suffered a fall was treated on the scene by the team doctor before being evacuated by the Air Ambulance.

The team was also involved with an Area Call, involving the four teams in the Beacons area, to evacuate a paraglider who had descended rather faster than he’d planned. Fortunately mostly bruised pride, but was treated on scene for minor cuts and then walked out.
