Latest Incident

Thursday 19 April 2018 - Cwm Idwal

A walker reported to NWP that they had heard shouts for help in the Cwm Idwal area. No further info was available and no contact could be made with the informant. Due to the large amount of people in Cwm Idwal and no further calls to NWP the team decided not to deploy unless further calls were received. There are also many goats in that area at present.

We are on-call 24 hours a day, throughout the year.

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.

We are all proud of the voluntary tradition of the mountain search and rescue service.
We are a registered charity and rely on donations to run our life-saving public service. There is much work to be done in raising funds to support the work we do. Annual running costs are in the region of £65,000.
