Search and Rescue – SAR

We carry out proactive patrols and respond to emergency calls primarily from the Police. We also respond to calls from HM Coastguard, and are made aware of a number of incidents by members of the public including those who work in the various businesses who are located in the Beachy Head area.  Whether we are searching on foot using proven SAR techniques or by vehicle via the roads or travelling over the downland, we aim to swiftly establish the location of the person who is of concern, be it night or day. Our equipment ranges from high specification binoculars to state of the art thermal imaging cameras with the ability to ascertain which equipment is needed  further demonstrating skill from the team members on duty.
