This month I thought I would talk about Search and Rescue teams. My husband is part of Mòn-SAR. This is short for Mòn Search and Rescue. Mòn being the Welsh name of Anglesey.
They first went operational in the Summer of 2018 and are a Lowland rescue team. This is a quote taken from their website and explains exactly what they do and who they search for.
Môn-SAR are a highly trained, dedicated and motivated volunteer lowland search and rescue team that provides emergency services and the community on Ynys Môn/Anglesey with specialist expertise to search for vulnerable missing people – 24/7, 365 days per year.
They do different types of training weekly. Sometimes it is in the classroom and other times it’s out in the field.
My husband is a Search Manager and recently the team were called mid morning to search for a missing male. By early evening a body was discovered and the specially trained team recovered him. It was was a sad case, and the volunteers worked with the local police and SARDA dogs to locate him. [Search and Rescue Dog Associations).
Search and rescue teams are based all over the country and include RNLI (Royal National Lifeboat Institution) who specifically rescue people from our seas and coastline.
