    Supported entirely by public donations

We are a voluntary emergency service who attend callouts in response to requests from the Police. The team is on call 24 hours a day, 365 days a year and consists entirely of unpaid volunteers.

Our main function is the search and rescue of missing or injured people, principally in upland or mountainous areas, but we can be called on whenever our specialised skills may be of use, such as searching for vulnerable persons in rural areas.

The team are trained for many different types of incident ranging from crag rescue, missing person searches through to water rescue.

Our principal area of operations extends from the southern Peak District to as far south as Milton Keynes, covering parts of Derbyshire, Leicestershire, Nottinghamshire and Staffordshire, but we can also be called to assist teams in other areas when needed. In the past, the team has attended incidents in areas as far afield as Wales and Scotland.
