Calder Valley Search and Rescue Team were alerted to an incident that required our assistance near the stepping-stones in Burley in Wharfedale. The incident involving a 26yo lady with a suspected broken ankle.This is in our operational area. However we were already dealing with a separate incident so requested that the Calder Valley Team continue to the scene. Ten members from Calder Valley with six of our team members and additional assistance from West Yorkshire Fire & Rescue Service were deployed. Once on-scene, an evacuation route was agreed and as there were enough Mountain Rescue personnel to deal with the stretcher carry, it was decided to stand down the Fire and Rescue crew. The casualty was packaged and evacuated on a wheeled stretcher to the ambulance for onward journey to hospital.
