North Dartmoor Search and Rescue

Registered Charity No 1106096

The North Dartmoor Search and Rescue Team (NDSRT) is a voluntary organisation based in Okehampton, linked to Mountain Rescue, England and Wales. For more than 30 years, our volunteers have been offering vital support for the Police and other emergency services by providing a Search and Rescue service for missing and injured persons, 365 days a year.

We do much more than come to the assistance of hill walkers and hikers lost or in difficulty on Dartmoor. We are often called out to search for and, if necessary rescue, many other missing people including the elderly, lost children and despondents.

The team is often mobilised by the Devon and Cornwall Constabulary following a 999 call. We respond immediately, day or night.

The NDSRT consists of around 40 highly trained unpaid volunteers drawn from many walks of life. Each brings unique skills and abilities which together create a professional and dedicated organisation.

Over the years, NDSRT has extended its responsibilities to cover more lowland areas of Devon, Cornwall and Somerset. Today, around half of all "call outs" are away from Dartmoor itself.

The team also provides vital safety cover and marshalling for local community and public events such as Ten Tors, an annual event involving some 2400 youngsters in a two-day expedition across Dartmoor.

Our organisation costs well over £15,000 per year to maintain, but as a registered charity, we are wholly dependent on donations from the general public. Your support is essential to protect this vital, and sometimes life-saving, service.
