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 for donating the web design and hosting our website.

Looking forward to the new series of ITV Countrywise, especially the episode on 1 Dec which is planned to include a feature on our team and the use of search dogs. ...
