Taree Rescue Squad has a busy weekend with callouts.
The rescue volunteers were called to assist NSW Ambulance paramedics in Saturday, September 26, when a bike rider was injured near forest in Taree.
The patient was secured in a stokes litter and carried to an awaiting 4WD ambulance, the squad reported.
Then just after 6pm Saturday night the squad was called to a motor vehicle accident at Wingham, with reports of a person trapped.
Emergency services responded quickly with multiple units attending, and assistance was provided at the scene following the rescue.
On Sunday morning just before 9am the squad attended an animal rescue in Wingham. The animal was removed from the tree and back into the safety of its owners.
"Whilst we don't charge for our services, we appreciate the owner's generous donation to the Taree Rescue Squad and we hope that all patients from this weekend's rescues recover well," a squad spokesperson said..
"Please stay safe this coming long weekend and school holidays."
