List of Incidents by year
The Team can be called out at any time of the Day or Night, to assist the Police in their emergency response duties. Call outs range from the obvious climbing accidents and injured or lost walkers, to searches for children and the elderly missing in Urban Areas. We work closely with our neighbouring Teams, Llanberis, South Snowdonia and Aberdyfi, and are often called in to help the Search Dogs (SARDA Wales) if they are in our area, as they often need Navigators with good local knowledge for the Dog Handlers.
22 Sqdn at R.A.F Valley and now HM Coastguard Bristow helicopter are called in to assist us from time to time (if available), they are very useful for searching areas and moving troops from the rendezvous to the incident site, so saving a lot of time.
They also airlift the casualty to Hospital, which is better for the casualty and the Team's backs, as it takes at least a party of twelve to carry a stretcher efficiently for any length of time. All Call Outs start with a Pager message from the Police to the Team Leaders informing them of an incident and to phone Control for more information. The Team Leader will then ascertain whether the whole Team needs to be called out or whether a few members who are close at hand can deal it with. Very often the first reports are sketchy and a lot of fact-
On average we have 15 people attend a Call Out.
