The Team

The Exmoor Search and Rescue Team provides a Search and Rescue service across large parts of Devon and Somerset.  We assist the Police in locating lost or missing persons and recovering the injured or ill from remote locations.

  • Team members are on call 365 days a year, 24 hours a day.
  • We work closely with Avon & Somerset Police, Devon & Cornwall Police, South Western¬†Ambulance Service NHS Trust, RAF Search & Rescue and HM Coastguard.
  • We are members of Mountain Rescue (England and Wales) and Peninsula Mountain & Cave Rescue Association (PenMaCRA).
