SARA is a member of Mountain Rescue England and Wales and has been for many years, although we don't have any mountains in our area, our membership reflects the technical skills that we undertake. Our land based operations consist of the following areas:
Missing Person Search
Working along side our local police services, we conduct searches for vulnerable missing people. We will respond in any weather condition and at any time of day. Our volunteer crew are trained to work in many challenging conditions with skills and specialist equipment to locate, stablise and extract casualties
Utilizing our 4x4 vehicles, Mountain Rescue Casualty Care trained crew and specialist equipment, we assist West Midlands Ambulance Service to access, treat and transport casualties. We have many health care professionals on the team and work hand-in-glove with the emergency medical services in our region.
During adverse weather, our team provides emergency transport for ambulance staff, to ensure that patients can still receive appropriate and timely care.
Rope Assisted Search and Rescue
Our team is able to work on steep and vertical terrain, we have technical experience and equipment for working in these areas. We work closely with our colleagues in the fire and rescue service to ensure we both work to the same standards and practices. Safety is paramount is all our activities but its even more so here, as such there are many significant costs associated with this activity.
