SATURDAY 11TH JUNE 2022
Cleveland Police contacted us during the afternoon to help them search for a missing person from Hartlepool. A number of Police Officers were involved in the search and our Team members were sent to assist, taking with them our Incident Command Vehicle and a Land Rover. After a briefing they were deployed to cover various areas of Summerhill Country Park. We also requested support from ‘Mountain Rescue Search Dogs England’ and as a result a search dog and handler from Swaledale MRT were sent to assist.
We were later stood-down by the Police when they informed us that the missing person had been found safe and well. Fifteen Cleveland MRT members plus the Swaledale MRT handler & dog were involved in the search or en route when stood-down. Our search only lasted for one-hour but taking into account travelling time the call-out lasted approximately three-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
