Mountain Rescue Teams ask visitors to stay away

SHARE:

Richard Warren, Chairman of Cumbria’s Mountain Rescue Teams has responded to the increased numbers of people travelling to Cumbria:
 
"The team leaders of the twelve Lake District Mountain Rescue teams are deeply concerned about the increased volume of people who are continuing to travel to our area and put local people, team members and other emergency services workers at increased risk of COVID-19.

"We therefore echo the comments of the Assistant Chief Constable of Cumbria Police. Please stay away. 
 
"We are a dedicated group of over 400 volunteers who have been through some tough rescues and major incidents in our time together. We’ve always been there for you. However, we find ourselves in a unique situation and needing to focus on our families and our work right now. We must also fully support our NHS colleagues who are under pressure already – many of whom are team members in the Lakes. Our mountain rescue colleagues in North Wales and the rest of the country are facing similar challenges. 
 
"We accept that some of you may consider this to be an over-reaction. It is not. For over sixty years we have supported you to enjoy the mountains in every weather. For the foreseeable future we simply need you to return the favour. Please do not come to the mountains. Spread the word as far as you can."
