All of our amazing team members give up their free time and skills to help give something back to the community.
They receive no recognition or pay for this life saving work.
To become operational, as well as having the suitable level of fitness, our team members have to train and be nationally assessed to Lowland Rescue standards in first-aid, navigation, water safety and search techniques. Many of our team also extend their skills even further by completing courses in search planning and management, K9 first-aid, advanced medical care and other related training - all in the aim of saving the lives of the people we find until that person is safely in the hands of the emergency services.
It takes time, effort and dedication to become an operational member of any SAR team. We are proud of our team and our team members.
We consider ourselves one of the most experienced, one of the longest established and one of the best dedicated dog search teams in the world.
If you would like to talk to us about joining the team, then please contact us.
We have operational and non operational roles.
Oh, and you don't need a dog to join! (unless you plan to be a dog handler that is!)
