    Written by

    Recently Dartmoor Search and Rescue Team (Ashburton) visited River Teign Sea Scouts(1st Shaldon) at their headquarters near the Ness in Shaldon. During the visit the Scouts were invited to join in with a number of activities. The activities included map and compass work, bandaging and splinting, moving casualties on a stretcher, searching in the dark and using radios.

    Craig Scollick from DSRT (Ashburton) said ‘ It was great to visit Shaldon Scouts and see their enthusiasm for things we do, I dare say we’ll get a few volunteers from the Scout Group in the future’.

    Andy Dorey Group Scout Leader said ‘ The Scouts had a great time learning new skills when Dartmoor Search & Rescue recently visited our Shaldon HQ; it was really good of them to come along for the evening and let the scouts get hands on with some specialist equipment. On behalf of all the Scouts a big thank you for a fantastic evening’

We are a resource available to the Police, ambulance and fire services 24/7 and can assist in rural and urban searches as well as flood rescue.
