We are pleased to report that the missing person has now been located safe and well. The team then helped get her back to a place of safety and provide medical care until a handover could be done with paramedics who arrived a short time later.
A great result and well done to all those in attendance today. The team are now standing down and returning to base. ... See MoreSee Less
One of our team members stopped to help at a serious road traffic collision on his way home on the A40 near Ruislip in London last week. He was the first trained person on scene and alone he pulled one casualty out of a burning vehicle, who had sustained major head trauma whilst also talking to the other injured passenger in the front seat to get them out of the vehicle. As he was carrying his medical kit in his car, he was able to provide vital trained medical care until the police and London Fire Brigade arrived and until a proper handover could be made to the London Ambulance Service and the HEMS team.
Officers in charge of the scene rightly said that “a cracking piece of first responder first aid had been carried out”. There is no doubting that when every second counts, he will have provided a significant beneficial effect to the survivability of both casualties who were described as “fighting for their lives” as a result of the accident and resulting fireball until the time that the blue light services arrived on scene to get them to hospital.
A massive well done to our team member and fantastic when the skills and competencies of team members can be so usefully put into action like this. Excellent work. ... See MoreSee Less
