After a very busy couple of days, Lowland Rescue is getting a fair bit of attention in social media circles. If you're visiting us here for the first time, welcome!

Our national network of teams carry out over two hundred thousand man-hours of search and rescue activity every year. Please take a look at this short video to see what happens when a call comes in to us...

Our team members have located two missing persons on two separate searches today, both found alive and within a few hours of arriving on scene.

There are no individual medals or awards for the professionalism and dedication that has been displayed today, in fact a successful find is reward enough. But we thought it deserved some recognition, so here's one for the team below.

If you would like to join us on future searches, whether you have relevant skills and experience or not, please get in touch. (no prior medals required) 😊
