Search and Rescue with SusSAR

a frosty sunrise on Saturday
I just completed a weekend course at Oxenwood, Wilts. The Lowland Search Technician course provides the basic certification to become operational in a Search and Rescue Team. SusSAR (Sussex Search and Rescue) prepared nine of us very well for this course with theory and practical training sessions since last October. Teams from Oxfordshire, Wiltshire and Cambridgeshire also attended and everyone passed :)  A tracking course was also held and our two SusSAR attendees passed.

Everything to do with the training and operations of SAR teams is voluntary, self funded and very professional. The team spirit among SAR people is amazing.

If you are interested in getting involved with an SAR Unit operationally or for fund raising you can contact your local SAR team:
