The first incident of the new year saw us called out to assist Teesdale and Weardale MRT with a search for a missing 60 year old whose car had been found in a carpark at Easington Colliery last night.
Teesdale team had been searching since Sunday night for the man and asked for Cleveland Team’s assistance when the search resumed this morning.
As Cleveland Team were arriving at the RV news arrived that a man’s body had been located on the beach and we were stood down.
14 Cleveland team members were involved in the incident that lasted 3 hours.
Applications can be made to join the team in a support role (Operational Support) or as a hill going (Search and Rescue) member.
Applications for either role can be made at any time. Intakes for Operational Support members occur at various times of the year. There is one annual intake for Search and Rescue normally each September.Join Now
