Mountain Rescue

Mountain Rescue England and Wales is comprised of many teams of local volunteers.  These teams train regularly to perform search and rescue operations for people who are missing and/or injured outside the reach of the regular ambulance service.

Every year there are hundreds of call-outs for the teams across North Wales.  The teams come to the aid of missing and injured people where the traditional emergency services are unable to get to.

please remember:

"If you need to call upon any mountain rescue team, you must dial 999, and ask for Police, Mountain Rescue"



Below you can explore the teams that provide voluntary search and rescue services in North Wales.
