Cheshire Search And Rescue (CSAR) are a team of volunteers who are on call 24 hours per day, 365 days per year and are ready to deploy in any weather. We receive no government funding whatsoever. The team is extremely well trained and equipped and we assist Cheshire police and other statutory emergency services. We are proud members of the Association of Lowland Search and Rescue and train and work with local Mountain Rescue teams.
In 2013 we were called out for 1618 man-hours.
Professional in all but pay.
We're very pleased to announce that following three busy days of training we now have 23 TAQA and 13 IQA trained team members. It was also fantastic to be joined by our friends and colleagues from Staffordshire Search and Rescue Team and WMSAR. Thank you to the Deanwater Hotel for hosting the event.
Two team members, Mark and Anthony, had the privilege of being invited to attend the Charter Night last night. The whole evening was focused on some fantastic charities in and around Warrington who have all had the pleasure of being chosen to be supported by the Rotarians of Warrington. We were very humbled to be chosen as one of the charities and gratefully received a cheque for £1000 last night! The work that the Rotary Club of Warrington undertake for their local charities is quite amazing! Thank you.
Another busy weekend for team members with a bag pack at Marks and Spencer Gemini to raise vital funds for new vehicles, and for other members, NNAS navigation exams.
