The core of what the team does is to deploy small parties of trained search technicians in lost and missing person cases. We support other emergency services such as the Police, HMCG and Fire & Rescue.
This may be searching for those living with dementia or despondency in urban, suburban or rural environments. Each search party goes out equipped to operate in all weather conditions at any time of day or night. They are then able to provide life-saving care to any casualties located. Weekly training ensures that we maintain high standards of core skills such as navigation, communications, first-aid and search theory. Additional training also covers areas as diverse as off-road driving, working with helicopters and even crime scene management.
