The Western Beacons Mountain Search and Rescue Team responds to emergencies in the mountainous and rural areas of Mid, South and West Wales. Called upon by the Police through the 999 system, we provide a professional Search and Rescue service manned by volunteers and paid for by charitable donations.
We have the capability to carry out search and rescue operations in remote and rough terrain. Besides a fully equipped mobile incident control vehicle and a 4×4 ambulance, the team also carries specialist cliff rescue equipment enabling us to rescue people from dangerous locations. We also support the Police in searching for missing walkers or vulnerable people in both rural and urban environments.
The team is a registered charity (No. 500652) and relies heavily on donations towards equipment and operational costs. If you wish to support us you can find full details of how to do so on our Fundraising page.
