Fall In Calls For Scarborough and Ryedale Mountain Rescue Team

Fall In Calls For Scarborough and Ryedale Mountain Rescue Team

Published by Karen Liu at 7:01am 27th December 2019.

Scarborough and Ryedale Mountain Rescue Team has attended 64 incidents so far this year.

They say they are busy with over one call-out a week to help the police or ambulance service.

But in total, those numbers are lower compared to 2018, when they were deployed 89 times to assist.

Ian Hugill, Incident Controller at Scarborough and Ryedale Mountain Rescue Team, said:

"Our call-outs can range anything from a request to use some technology to find somebody on their smart phone, to being deployed for two or three days in a long and protracted search.

We've been fairly consistent with what we would call a rescue; where either the police or ambulance service call us to an unknown location to deal with somebody who's injured.

What has dropped off this year are searches and we're not sure why; and that's normally something that's triggered by the police for an overdue walker, or somebody with a mental health issue, dementia, Alzheimer's, or someone with the intent to self harm."
