About the Project
Each search technician costs us as a charity £300 to initially train, qualify and provide essential personal kit and protective equipment to so that they can enter the difficult environments that we as a search team are required to enter. Each technician follows nationally recognised standards and training program before they can actively be part of the search team. This will also in turn give opportunity to 20 members of the community to train & make a difference. We receive no pay to do what we do and this initial training can save many people over the years that the training and kit will last for. Having our service available to the local Constabulary is invaluable to the community as a whole but more often than not goes unrecognised and often while the rest of the world is safe at home

We are a highly trained specialist search asset available 24 hours a day 365 days and nights a year.
