Waterbury Back-Country Rescue (WBCR) requested assistance with a 64-year old female complaining of a hip injury on the Hunger Mountain Trail.  
WBCR established command and deployed a hasty team to locate and evaluate the subject.  The patient was located ~0.5 miles / 400' in elevation up the trail.   A litter team was fielded next followed by additional rescuers to assist with the extrication.
The subject had been hiking down the tail and fell injuring her right hip / femur.  She was immobilized with a lower leg vacuum splint and then further immobilized with a vacuum mattress and significant padding to maintain a position of relative comfort.  
She was evacuated without incident with a litter/wheel (no belays required).  Once at the parking lot she was transferred to Stowe rescue for transport to UVMC.
