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.
Monday, two of our team members gave a presentation to the North Cheshire WI, with attendees from the many institutes in the area. We were made very welcome, the talk was well received and there were plenty of questions at the end. We must thank the group for their kind donation of £100.
Wednesday evening three team members and trainee search dog Skye, travelled to Tarvin to give a presentation to the WI. Many thanks to the institute for their donation of £60, plus the first contribution to team member Barbara Broderick's fundraising Three Lakes Challenge.
