Team Vehicles

The team currently owns two Landrovers, a Defender 110 Station Wagon and a specially converted 130 to our own design. Both are winch equipped and carry the familiar orange and white chequerboard decals signifying Mountain Rescue.

Both vehicles are registered and equipped as Ambulances, complete with 'Blues and Twos' lights and siren, and are able to be easily configured to accept and transport a casualty on a Moutain Rescue Bell Stretcher.  Both vehicles have been adapted to our needs and are able to carry a large amount of equipment and personnel in order to make a rapid and effective response to an incident or call-out.

In addition to these two Landrovers we also have a mobile incident response trailer which has been specially converted for our needs.  It is able to act as a control base to co-ordinate incidents and where briefings can take place, when away from a suitable building, and carries everything necessary to facilitate this including a generator, radios, maps etc.  This trailer has also been adapted to transport team equipment such as casualty bags, radios, radio masts, tents etc.
