Dartmoor Search and Rescue Ashburton
We are a search and rescue charity of 60 volunteers on call 24/7 dedicated to assisting the emergency services with the search and rescue of the lost, missing, injured and vulnerable including those with dementia, mental health illnesses and children.
Without volunteer search and rescue teams like us, the emergency services would not have the resources to devote to the search and rescue of missing or injured loved ones.
Dartmoor Search and Rescue Ashburton provides a professionally trained resource on a full range of incidents, including missing person enquiries, steep ground, swiftwater rescues and flooding, across Dartmoor and the south west, and to major incidents across England and Wales
Our highly trained team of volunteers are on call to help those in need 24/7 for any emergency.
YOUR SUPPORT IS VITAL
The search and rescue team at Ashburton relies on public support for over 92% of its income.
Without your donation, the team would cease to be operational and the emergency services would not have enough resources to search for those in need.
