What an experience – picked up in a Mountain Rescue Land rover (and dropped back home) and shown round their base just outside Garstang. Incredible team doing an incredible job.
I watched as they stripped all the kit out of one of their vehicles and methodically checked and tested everything. They do on all 3 vehicles monthly.
I was then shown their technology for search and rescue – hi tech to say the least and extremely impressive.
The work that they do and the rescues that they carry out are just so important (especially considering the area that they cover) and they get little or no funding. So all the money that they need, which is not inconsiderable taking into account all the kit , vehicles, technology and supplies, has to be raised from grants, donations and fundraising.
