  • Need

    Need

    Cornwall Search and Rescue Team relies on having two all terrain vehicles to get us into the remote locations where our rescues often take place. One of our vehicles is now beyond repair and this is seriously impacting on our ability to deliver the service that we are relied upon by the public and the emergency services to do.

    We urgently need funds to purchase a new Landrover so that we can maintain the provision of the vital service that we give.

    Solution

    The purchase of a new vehicle will enable us to return to full service immediately.

  • Aims

    Aim 1

  • Background

    Location

    The whole county of Cornwall is covered by Cornwall Search and Rescue team and includes areas of moorland and terrain that is difficult to access by normal vehicles.
    Cornwall is renowned for its many beautiful locations and as such the tourist industry is thriving. Cornwall Search and Rescue is able to provide a service to locate missing persons, to provide immediate medical care and to evacuate casualties from these areas.

    Beneficiaries

    The whole population of Cornwall plus visiting tourists could potentially benefit from this new vehicle. The other emergency services such as police and ambulance will also benefit by being able to call us to assist in any remote location and knowing that our attendance will be swift and appropriate in terms of equipment provided.
