In an emergency, call 999 and ask for Mountain Rescue.
Dartmoor Search & Rescue Team Tavistock rescues those who are lost, injured or distressed in the wilderness of Dartmoor. The team is entirely voluntary and funded solely by donations.
Team members are highly trained in a variety of skills including:
The team is called out by the Police and is on call 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
Like everyone else in MREW, DSRT Tavistock is following the national health protection advice and applying it to its situation as a voluntary service of Key Workers.
“MREW’s priority is resilience,” said Mike France, SEO (Senior Executive Officer) of MREW. “We need to make sure that as many of our trained volunteers as possible are available for essential call outs and to support the paid emergency services as needed.”
Needless to say, we remain on call during the Coronavirus pandemic. Please be #AdventureSmart on Dartmoor.
