2012 Incident #62 15.12.12 1320UTC #5495

The Initial Response Team, the IRT, was tasked to assist our West Bay flank team with a cliff rescue.  The location of the cliff rescue of a female and her dog was between Thorncombe Beacon and Doghouse Hill.  Due to the saturated weather conditions and the terrain, it  impossible to reach the location by 4*4.  Consequently all the equipment, to undertake such a rescue, had to be carried about 1 mile to the location.  This made the rescue arduous   The casualty and her dog were safely recovered to the top of the cliff.
