On Sunday 27th June 2021 eight applicants to join the Team as search and rescue members were put through their paces during an assessment day. After a welcome and briefing they undertook a series of navigational tasks based on a search scenario.
After a quick break for lunch some of our Team members demonstrated a range of rescue equipment and then the applicants had the opportunity to use the equipment in a rescue scenario.Many thanks to them for their participation in the assessment process.
Decisions regarding progress from this stage will be made in the next few weeks at a meeting of our Committee.For information about joining the Team in future years please check out the ‘Joining The Team’ page – but note the advice about timescales (no further S&R recruitment until at least 2022 and Support member applications are currently on hold).
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
