CALLOUTS: Corrรกn Tuathail/Cnoc na Toinne, Saturday 05.09.20.

At 15:50 on Saturday 05th September, the team was tasked to evacuate a female hillwalker with a lower leg injury near the base of the Zig-Zags on Cnoc na Toinne. A number of team members on the hill assisted the casualty to Ard na Locha where she was evacuated by Landrover to Lisleibane.

Later in the afternoon at approximately 18:00, the team was called to an incident at the summit of Carrauntoohill where a male walker in his 60โ€™s had taken ill. Coastguard helicopter Rescue 115 was on scene but due to poor weather conditions was unable to assist with the evacuation of the casualty. KMRT members climbed to the summit and treated the casualty on scene before short-roping him down to Ard na Locha via the Devilโ€™s Ladder. The casualty was then taken by Landrover from Ard na Locha to an awaiting ambulance at Kissaneโ€™s Cross. A total of 16 team members were involved in the rescue operation which concluded at 00.30.

Other team activity in recent weeks included a night navigation and search exercise at Treanmanagh, the evacuation of a casualty from Coumloughra and an evening search for a missing walker on Corrรกn Tuathail who was subsequently found safe and well in the Black Valley.

Callout 21: 30/08/20

Location: Mweelrea

MMRT were tasked by An Garda Siochana at 1912hrs to assist in a search for a hiker who was overdue on their return from a hike on Mweelrea. MMRTs incident commander tasked team members to a rendezvous point at Delphi to conduct a search on Mweelrea.

While the team were en route, the missing person returned safe and well and the team were stood down at 1940hrs.

This callout is a good example of a hiker leaving their estimated return time and route with a family member or friend so that mountain rescue can be tasked if needed and so that the search area can be identified quickly. 

It is good practice, like this hiker did, to leave the route and estimated return time with someone responsible to ensure mountain rescue can locate a person in an emergency, particularly now moving into the autumn and winter months, with shorter daylight hours.

**Callout 31

Last night, Search Dog Ziggy was out with his Mountain Rescue Team South Eastern Mountain Rescue Association on a search for 2 hillwalkers that had become disorientated in the Comeragh Mountains due to poor visbility. The pair were located safe and well by a SEMRA search party and escorted off the mountains. Search dogs Murphy and Ella were stood down en-route.

Good boy Ziggy! ๐Ÿ† 

Did you know Ziggy loves sausages? Perhaps his handler might give Ziggy a piece of sausage for every like this post gets! ๐Ÿพ

SEMRA received a call from An Garda Sรญochรกna Waterford just after 3pm today to assist a fallen walker at Coumshingaun.  Initial reports were that the walker had fallen and hit his head but was alert and felt able to continue walking.  He had received first aid treatment from a walking group nearby and they were escorting him down to meet with the SEMRA party on the way up. Two members of An Garda Siochana with first aid equipment also made their way up to the casualty.   A stretcher party followed shortly after.  A National Ambulance Service (NAS) ambulance was waiting at Kilclooney woods in case it was needed.  While being assessed by the team doctor, the condition of the injured man deteriorated and the Coast Guard helicopter Rescue 117 was called.  The injured man was winched into the helicopter at 15:15 and brought to Waterford airport for onward transfer to hospital.  SEMRA members operated the hi-line and also ensured other hillwalkers remained clear of the area while the helicopter evacuation was taking place.  All team members safely off the hill at 6pm.  We wish the walker a speedy recovery.
