About Us:

Northumberland National Park Mountain Rescue Team provides a search and rescue service in the Northumbria Police area.

Our team of highly trained members and resources help to save lives and alleviate distress amongst persons affected by an accident, disaster or natural hazard.

The team, in common with all mountain rescue teams in England and Wales, is made up entirely of volunteers who give of their time freely and without financial reward. 

The types of incidents we help with are:

• Mountain search and/or rescue – for missing/injured walkers, fell runners, mountain bikers and other outdoor enthusiasts, in summer and winter conditions.

• Non-mountain search – for high risk, vulnerable or despondent individuals missing from home in urban and rural areas (e.g. elderly individuals with dementia, young children).

• Non-mountain rescue –in ‘difficult to access’ areas (e.g. body recoveries, rope access).

• Water search and rescue – for kayakers/canoeists and other water related incidents, where bankside searching is required.

• Resilience – response to severe weather events (e.g. snow bound motorists, flooding events).

The Team are called out by the police and operate under their authority when a search and rescue incident occurs, and whilst called a mountain rescue team, we are often used by the police in lowland and even urban searches when our specialist skills are required.

We need your help so we can continue to offer our life saving service 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

Thank you for your support and good luck!
