Global Rescue Services is a Cadaver Search Dog, Water Search Dog and Swiftwater Flood Rescue Team established in 2002. The team consists entirely of volunteers including trainees new to this type of work, as well as experienced professional blue light rescue personnel from within the Ambulance, Fire, Military and Search & Rescue community. Global Rescue Services is a unique organisation in having an accredited Specialist Water Search Dogs team. This is one of the very first such teams in the UK and among only a handful worldwide.
Our services are available to statutory emergency services as well as our fellow search teams. We look to work alongside fellow teams for the benefit of all involved. The team is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year, and should you require Global Rescue’s Services urgently, we have the ability to rapidly deploy an independent and fully self-sufficient team on a 72 hour deployment. Advice can be sought from the Team Leader group or Search Managers at any time. Should you feel we may be of service, please contact us now so links can be forged to save time in the future.
Following the flooding experience recently in North Wales, team members participated in an all wales Flooding Exercise in Bala entitled Exercise Berwyn.
