The Exmoor Search and Rescue Team provides a Search and Rescue service across large parts of Devon and Somerset. We assist the Police in locating lost or missing persons and recovering the injured or ill from remote locations.
- We are made up entirely of highly skilled volunteer members.
Team members are on call 365 days a year, 24 hours a day.
- We work closely with Avon & Somerset Police, Devon & Cornwall Police, South Western Ambulance Service NHS Trust, RAF Search & Rescue and HM Coastguard.
- We are members of Mountain Rescue (England and Wales) and Peninsula Mountain & Cave Rescue Association (PenMaCRA).
- Our operational area covers remote rural locations including Exmoor National Park and the Quantock Hills as well as urban areas such as Taunton & Barnstaple.
- We are a charitable organisation and receive no government funding.
The team comprises of members, trainees and supporters from all walks of life. However we all have one thing in common - the love of the great outdoors!
