Incident #015/2021 - Beacon Fell


On Thursday afternoon at 16.00 pm on the 18th February our third callout of the day came a request from Lancashire Police to search for 2 young children who were lost on the popular outdoor area of Beacon Fell, just outside of Preston. The 2 children were playing a game in the forest and had become detached from their parents, causing worry and alarm. With the recue Team setting up our control center at the Beacon fell visitors center, one of our Team members spotted the 2 children coming out of the woods as they were driving towards the search control HQ. Having identified them, our Team member then brought them back to our search control and they were reunited wit their families.
