What to do in an emergency

  1. Decide if your situation can be dealt with by your group. It can take several hours for a rescue team to reach you, depending on the location and weather. The best plan may be to continue descending, if safe to do so.
  2. If you do require assistance dial 999 and ask for POLICE, then MOUNTAIN RESCUE.

Do not expect a rescue to be immediate and do not expect a helicopter.

When in contact with the emergency services be prepared to provide information relating to the emergency. The following information will be asked for:

  • Your name and contact number
  • The nature of the problem or injury
  • Location including grid reference / name of climb
  • Name, age, and medical history of casualty
  • The weather conditions where you are

A member of LMRT will normally attempt to call you back to gain further details that may be required, or to update you on the progress of a rescue.
