16 November: Inter-Agency Exercise

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.
