The Initial Response Team, the IRT, was tasked to assist South West Ambulance and Dorset Air Ambulance. An elderly gentleman had collapsed in a very narrow street of Lyme Regis. The air ambulance initially dropped off their paramedic on the main beach and then relocated the helicopter to the car park next to the fire station. The casualty was then transferred to the helicopter and he was immediately ‘medevacced’ to Dorchester Hospital.
