OCHILS Mountain Rescue Team (OMRT) swung into action last week after receiving a report of an emergency around Dumyat.

Forth Valley Police Division requested the group's assistance during the afternoon of Wednesday, November 11, as a walker had sustained an injury in the area of the Menstrie hill.

A spokesperson for OMRT said: "Team members worked alongside colleagues from the ambulance service special operations and response team to assist the casualty.

"As always, we wish the casualty a speedy recovery."

The callout came just a few days after OMRT conducted a successful training session which featured various mountain rescue scenarios in the Glen Devon area.

This included a search for a fictional "lost hiker" – and rehearsing a stretcher evacuation of a casualty over steep ground.

Due to the Coronavirus Pandemic, the group is carrying out training in smaller groups.

Nevertheless, OMRT is always available to anyone in need of help. The group can be reached by calling 999, asking for police and then mountain rescue.
