ERTSAR is an INSARAG listed Medium USAR team, with specialists trained in complicated technical rescue from collapsed structures.
The charity is run entirely by volunteers who are on call 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, ready to respond to help those in need across the globe.
Established to relieve suffering and distress among persons affected by disasters, ERTSAR deploys to major international incidents.
Members are trained to use specialist rescue equipment such as PARATECH shoring, DELSAR seismic listening devices and Searchcams.
The team works with the police in locating despondent missing persons in urban and austere wilderness environments.
As a UK DEFRA flood response team we have swift-water rescue techs and boat operators capable of deploying into a variety of water rescue scenarios.
