CALLOUT: Stuck van driver in a deep dark wood!

“Mountain Rescue, much more than just mountains”. Tuesday night’s callout proved again how our tools and versatility can be useful in a variety of circumstances. A van delivery driver had broken down in the middle of Clocaenog Forest, some distance from a public road on the forest tracks. It was very dark and he had no idea where he was. We used the PhoneFind system to locate him and then one of our local team members popped along to pick him up and take him to a place of safety where he was able to make his own way home. The vehicle will be recovered today in daylight. Some people may consider this is nothing to do with Mountain Rescue, but as far as we are concerned he was in a vulnerable position, unable to reach safety, needing to be rescued, which we were happy to help with.
