The team was called out by this afternoon by Forth Valley Police Division to assist an injured walker near the North Third reservoir.

A team doctor and medic were both quickly on scene to assess and treat the casualty while team members deployed onto the hill with our rescue stretcher.

Following treatment to make the casualty as comfortable as possible they were carried on our stretcher to our nearby land rover who had been able to access a hill track avoiding a longer and more uncomfortable stretcher carry.

As always we wish the casualty a speedy recovery.

Today we welcomed young Adam to our rescue post at Fishcross.

In December 2020 Adam and his Mum were descending a local hill when Adam slid into a rock suffering a serious knee injury.

Adam’s mum knew exactly what to do and called 999 asked for the police then mountain rescue and supplied a grid reference of their location. A passing hill walker and a local GP also stopped to provide warmth on this cold December evening.

The team was quickly called out and Adam was treated at the scene then carried off the hill in our rescue stretcher.

When Adam had recovered from his injury he decided that he wanted to undertake a challenge to raise money for the team.

Adam had set himself the challenge of scaling the equivalent height of Base Camp to Everest summit (3,500m) in the Ochils between Monday 19th July and the end of the month. We received word on Friday that Adam had completed this monumental effort a week early, no mean feat at any time but especially impressive given the recent temperatures.

At the time of writing Adam has raised over £800 and we welcomed him and his family today to say thank you and show him our base.

A fantastic effort from this inspirational young man🏔
