DARTMOOR RESCUE GROUP
IN AN EMERGENCY CALL 999
Dartmoor Rescue Group
The Dartmoor Rescue Group comprises 4 teams to cover the 365 square miles of Dartmoor and beyond.
The Teams support each other and often work together when needed. The four teams provide a search and rescue service for not only Dartmoor, but all of Devon and Cornwall, and also work with the Cornwall and Exmoor Search and Rescue teams.
The members of Dartmoor Rescue Group, like those in the overall Mountain Rescue organisation are all volunteers. However, they are professionally trained in searching, navigation, casualty care, search dog handling and swift water rescues.
See each Team's website for details of our training and rescue work.
