Whilst on exercise in the Commondale area the team were approached by a scout leader who had two groups of 7 youngsters overdue. We were able to use SARLOC (messaging to their smart phones for a GPS position) to ascertain where the groups were and could then direct them onto the correct route to meet our search parties who escorted them to their campsite.
18 team members were involved for 2 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
