Northumberland National Park Mountain Rescue Team provides a vital life-saving, emergency search and rescue service across the whole of the Northumbria Police area. This vast and largely remote and unpopulated area encompasses all of Northumberland and Tyne and Wear, and measures approximately 5,000km².
All team members are volunteers and give their time to train and respond to incidents entirely without charge. As a charity, we rely on public donations, grants and legacies to continue to deliver our highly professional, emergency service. A considerable financial commitment is also made by each team member, who is responsible for the provision of some of their clothing and equipment and all of their own travelling expenses.
