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.
