Meet the Team

Meet the Team

Team members are all active outdoor people, walkers and climbers who have chosen to 'put something back' into the activities they enjoy, by volunteering their time and skills to provide a Mountain Rescue Service in Northumberland. 

Members come from a wide variety of professions and live throughout the Northumbria Police area.  Members also vary in age, but our insurance dictates that age eighteen is the youngest whilst seventy is the oldest in order to be elligible for full team membership.  Typically younger members tend to be in their early twenties as this allows some time to gain the, all important, outdoor skills and experience necessary to begin training as a Mountain Rescue Team Member.

The team are committed to the concept of safety in the hills and will often be found providing rescue cover for outdoor events such as fell races or mountain bike races.  We also give talks and slide presentations on the work of the team to local interested groups.

If you wish to contact the team to arrange a talk or discuss the possibility of the teams presence at an event you are organising please use the link on the Contact Us page.
