As a strange coincidence, yesterday I posted some guidelines on calling out a Lake District Mountain Rescue team on the 40sWalkersNorth website. Here they are:
If you, or someone in your party, has an accident whilst out walking in the Lake District, and need the assistance of Mountain Rescue, then this is what you should do:
- First of all, DON'T panic. Write down the facts of the accident, e.g. female, broken ankle, Catbells, Grid ref: NYXXXX.
- Dial 999 and ask for Cumbria Police. Make sure it is Cumbria Police, because the call may have been routed to a response centre outside of the Lake District.
- Tell them where you are - providing a grid ref if possible - and give details of the casualty, injury and location.
- Stay where you are (so that you don't lose your signal) and keep your mobile phone line free until contacted by the Mountain Rescue Team. Then follow the Rescue Controller's instructions.
More advice from the Lake District Search & Mountain Rescue Association here:
If you can't get a signal and have already registered your phone with the Emergency SMS Service, then send a text stating something similar to the following:
Cumbria Mountain Rescue, man, heart attack, Bowfell
Then send the text message to 999.
If you haven't already registered your phone with the emergency text service, then it's a good idea to do so now - before you may need it.
As a matter of interest does anyone know if the message from Shea Mary..... is from a bot of some description?
It is odd that a message from 2 years ago gets resurrected and nothing of any value is added to the discussion, other than a link to an online service!
Valid advice from Lorraine though
Not all those who wander are lost.
It's definitely a spammer of some sort!
But it's always good to be reminded of the procedure - and the amount of time it can take to get MR on scene!
I know Kate, I used to be on one. We were on the spot and it could still take a some time to get sorted and on the go, especially if we were called out of the pub! More than once we arrived about the same time as the helicopter, and that was coming from the other side of the country!!
Somewhat embarrassingly one of our instructors had an 'incident' whilst taking a party caving, fortunately there was a cave rescue training day going on in the same system and they sorted everything out for her.
Unfortunately for her, the guy that organised the training day was head of caving at the the centre where we worked, it took a while to live that one down!

Any particular incident in mind, Bedouin?
