Latest Incident

Tuesday 17 September 2019 - Cwm Llugwy

A member of the public reported a stray dog, possibly a working farm dog, by itself in the Cwm Llugwy area and was concerned for its welfare. Two team members drove up the reservoir, located the dog but it immediately ran away up the hillside onto Pen yr Helgi Ddu. It did not appear injured or unwell, so NWP and local farmers were updated on its location and the team took no further action.

Ogwen Valley Mountain Rescue CIO

Technical Rigging for Rescue. Tryfan as a backdrop

Ogwen Valley Mountain Rescue CIO (OVMRO), or Sefydliad Achub Mynydd Dyffryn Ogwen as we are known in the native Welsh language, is a voluntary mountain rescue team responding to incidents in the mountains and valleys surrounding the Ogwen Valley, Glyderau and Carneddau mountain ranges and surrounding area in northern Snowdonia. We are on-call 24 hours a day, throughout the year.


Training is an essential part of team life

Our team is made up entirely of volunteers who have a wide variety of day jobs. Team members are all mountaineers with vast local knowledge and first aid training. Many have expertise in casualty care, advanced first aid, emergency driving and water rescue.
