The Emergency Response Team
Search and Rescue UK
MEDICAL AID | HUMANITARIAN ASSISTANCE | SEARCH | TECHNICAL RESCUE | MANAGEMENT | LOGISTICS | EDUCATION
We were established to provide relief and assistance of people in the UK or any part of the world who are the victims of war or natural disaster, trouble, or catastrophe in particular by the supply of medical aid or search & rescue services to such persons.
We also provide training and education to support our objectives and build capacity and resilience.
Our motto is: "That Others May Live."
In general there are two types of "SAR" (Search and Rescue).
Missing / Lost Person
We do and train for both but our main focus is Disaster Response Search and Rescue such as the type that is required after an Earthquake causing "Structural Collapse" of buildings (known as USAR or Urban Search and Rescue)
