Search and Rescue Team

Join Warwickshire Search and Rescue as they take to our Live Arena to share the amazing work of the search and rescue dog, including how these talented dogs learn their craft and a demonstration putting this expertise into action. You can also get up close to the dogs on their stand and learn even more about the charity.

More about the team....

Warwickshire Search and Rescue is an operational Lowland Rescue team (one of 36 teams in the UK), set up to assist the Police with searches for vulnerable missing persons within Warwickshire and beyond. We are on call 24 hours a day, every day of the year.

Our team volunteers directly for Warwickshire Police, Warwickshire Fire and Rescue Service, and West Midlands Police, providing valuable search management services and physical resources to search on land and inland waterways.  We are usually called out by Police Search Advisors, but this can vary between police forces.  It is important to mention that we cannot be called out by members of the public, only by government agencies.  We often get called out by neighbouring Lowland Rescue teams, as well, to assist them in police searches within their areas.   Most of our work involves locating high risk missing people, those most at risk of injury or loss of life, either through their own actions, their environment, or due to illness or injury.  However, Lowland Rescue teams can be called upon for other tasks, such as helping people in flooded areas.
