Incident report

The team was called to a known location incident where a group of three walkers had become stranded due to darkness. Team search managers located the group using mobile phone technology called SARLOC which gave an approximate location just south of Crowden Tower. Team members were dispatched to find the group. The group was found and walked off the hill, after some time spent warming up in the team box tents.

    Thanks for rescuing us. Cannot thank the team enough. Was so surprised when we found out, we were helped out by a team of ‘volunteers’ who enjoyed rescuing walkers. The team was very professional and made us feel good very soon. Truly Inspiring!
