September 2020

September saw the team respond to two small incidents. The first was to locate a lost walker in the Glen Dye area. Thankfully the individual was located safe and well by others involved in the response. The second was to assist an injured mountain biker on Pitfichie Hill. The casualty was transported to hospital by Helimed 79 for further treatment.

The team also carried out socially distant training following our Covid 19 protocol, being split into multiple small groups and carrying out navigation and radio training in different locations within our callout area. The day resulted in all groups having a fantastic day in various parts of the Cairngorms with perfect weather….team management had obviously forgotten to pre- order the rain! The weather allowed some good distance to be covered helping everyone get some extra miles in the legs ready for winter.

In other news, this month our team doctor, Naomi, presented ‘A day in the life of a mountain rescuer’ on CBBC. A great short video for young kids detailing what mountain rescuers get up to and answering some questions they might have. Check it out at:
