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.
Massive thanks to Prometheus Medical (@Prometheus on twitter) for donating this folding stretcher and medical supplies to the team. They will certainly be put to good use. Read more...
Tonight, a number of our team were involved in an assessment of their navigation skills. All team members are required to hold as a basic qualification the Bronze National Navigation Award Scheme (NNAS) qualification. The assessment took place in an unfamiliar area of the countryside around Burwardsley, with the added difficulty of the darker nights. We are pleased to announce that all candidates were successful and we celebrated in the Pheasant Inn. We now look forward to them progressing on to the Silver level. A big "thank you" to all our team who acted as assessors.
This evening team members were at The Grange High School covering medical skill stations to ensure that all team members are fluent in skills that are essential in that golden hour. Many thanks once again to The Grange for their kind hospitality and of course to our many Health Care Professional's who keep us on our toes!
