Surrey Search & Rescue

Training at Surrey Search & Rescue

The team trains at least once a week at locations across Surrey.

New recruits to the operational Search Team must train for a minimum of 6 months in a nationally recognised Lowland Rescue curriculum covering search techniques, casualty care, health and safety, communications, navigation and working with the emergency services.

Surrey Search & Rescue’s main type of callout is the missing-person search, where we are trained to analyse the behavioural statistics for any given type of missing person and search accordingly. This method of fast but targeted search has proven extremely effective at maximising the chances of survival for any casualty.

We also train in some more advanced skills which the team could be called upon to use by the emergency services, including water rescue and medical evacuation.

We are always looking for new training facilities and land. If you are able to offer us access to your facilities (classrooms, gymnasia, farm or common land etc.) then please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
