Have You Got What it Takes to be a Team Member?

Our team is made up of people from all walks of life. Some bring specific skills such as medical health professionals, whilst others simply have a love of the outdoors and want to do something positive with their time.

Becoming a team member is very rewarding but does require commitment; to initial and on-going training, search and rescue call-outs, and fundraising. Both trainees and full team members train every Tuesday evening, as well as occasional weekends. Once a trainee has completed training, they will receive call-out alerts by SMS, turning up to call-outs often as they can. Saving lives can also be physically and emotionally demanding.
