Welcome to DSRT Tavistock.

Dartmoor Search and Rescue exists to help the police and other related rescue organisations to locate, render appropriate assistance and evacuate missing persons to a place of safety.

Our services are entirely voluntary and in particular demand in situations where weather conditions are poor and the location of the missing person is unknown. All team members are highly trained in a variety of skills ranging from First Aid through to Navigation, searching techniques and radio operation.

Individual search teams are coordinated through a team leader who is in constant radio contact with the controller coordinating the search effort. We work closely with the police who initiate calls to us in situations where our services may be required.

Tavistock is one of four teams which make up the Dartmoor Search and Rescue Team group.

Please follow the links provided above if you require further information.

Watch this space for details of our activities and fund-raising events. If you wish to contact us or can offer assistance with our voluntary work, please e-mail us.

Alternatively, if you would like to make a donation or are aware of any fund-raising functions which you believe may be relevant, please contact our fund-raising officer.

We would like to thank A38.com for donating the web design and hosting our website.

Countryfile on Dartmoor, BBC 1, Sunday 28 June 7pm This Sunday join John Craven on Dartmoor, where he's exploring the working landscape both past and present. He sees how Dartmoor National Park is working with local farmers to maintain leats - watercourses that powered mills, farms and tin mines - and learns that some still supply water to moorland farmsteads. He also meets the farmers carving out a living 'on the granite.'

Dartmoor Search and Rescue Team - Tavistock shared Llanberis Mountain Rescue Team's post. ...

Following the sad events of the weekend we are disheartened to report that all three of our vehicles have been disabled after an attempted theft of the vehicle doors. The perpetrators have also cut through a number of wiring looms in an attempt to disable the vehicle alarms. We are now having to rely on neighbouring teams for vehicular support as we have been left in a position where we are unable to deploy team members or equipment. Please share the following appeal by North Wales Police and report anything you might have heard or seen to their non-emergency line by calling: 101 www.north-wales.police.uk/news-and-appeals/appeal-mountain-rescue-vehicles-damaged.aspx Media: For more information, please contact gruff@llanberismountainrescue.co.uk
