North Dartmoor Search and Rescue Team are all unpaid volunteers, trained to the highest standards to rescue lost or injured people, both on and off the moor. We are on call 24 hours a day, 365 days per year.
Although we are coordinated by the emergency services, we are in fact a registered charity, and are 100% dependent on donations from the general public. It costs in excess of £18,000 per year to maintain the running of the Team, which calls for a significant amount of fundraising, time and effort from the members and supporters.
As a member of Mountain Rescue England and Wales, we train and operate alongside other Search & Rescue Teams, and Mountain Rescue Teams, as well as specialist mountain dog search handlers, helicopter crews and the emergency services.
