SERVING THE COMMUNITY
Ways to contact the team
“I want to thank the Dartmoor Rescue Group, in particular, all the teams who participated in my rescue on Dartmoor.” On descending Down Tor, Mr Scott’s left foot slipped and hit a rock which broke his ankle. That particular weekend the four Dartmoor rescue teams were assembled at Okehampton Battle camp for a training weekend. All four teams responded to the callout and stretchered Mr Scott to a waiting ambulance. “During the rescue, throughout the waiting and decent, your teams exhibited calmness and professionalism which was of great consolation to me and my wife. Thank you once again.”

“I write to express my heartfelt thanks for your consummate professionalism and care when finding, and collecting me from the riverbank.” Mr Gregory had tripped, landing on rocks four feet from the main path. “Your team exuded a contagious and splendid mixture of confidence and joie de vivre, so vital when the rescue had suffered both injury and a serious dent to the self – confidence. In short, the pleasure of your jocund company assuredly began my healing process.”

Dartmoor Search And Rescue Also Help To Locate Despondent And Venerable People. In This Case The Search Was Not Successful But Appreciation Was Still Shown…
….. “We are also mindful that your volunteers give up their own time and the Dartmoor Rescue Group (DRG) was quite incredible. I am certain in the belief that the family of Mr ……. were reassured by the commitment, hard work, and turnout displayed by the DRG during the searches in which they were involved. I would therefore like to thank you and the DRG members for their effort and time.”

During Standby at Ten Tens 2019
Thank you so much to which ever team/s came to my aid when I fell yesterday (12/05/2019) near Bennett’s Cross.
You were so quick to make me safe, give me first aid and make me as comfortable as possible whilst waiting for the ambulance to arrive. Thank you,
