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.

CALLOUT. Yesterday afternoon we were called out to assist a walker in the Steeperton area on Dartmoor. Assisted by Dartmoor Search and Rescue Team - Tavistock, the male was located after a short search in poor visibility. He has sustained an ankle injury and was stretchered back to the Landrover and then taken to an awaiting ambulance.

This is the Carnival entry that would have been, but for last night's callout. ...

Shame you couldn't do the carnival today, it just goes to show that when called out the team will put aside all and any current plans and go to assist those in need. Steven Williams stayed on and walked with us along side the Devon Cave Rescue Organisation Land-rover still in his lederhosen collecting money for the Lions Club. ...
