Search Team Member

Search Team training can be very intense and will cost you in time and money. Due to the nature of live searching, recruits need to be physically able and fit. However, the rewards are great once you have trained and participated in a live search to save somebody.


No specific skills are needed to join, as we provide training recognized to a national standard. Commitment, enthusiasm and the ability to work as part of a team are more important. There are some basic minimum standards that people must attain during the initial training and assessment process, and upon completion of these, they will become a member of the search team.


There are some opportunities for Operational and Non-Operational members.


Team roles are critical to the structure of London Search & Rescue. All members work operationally in teams.


The basic requirement for each member is to be a trained and qualified Search Technician [ST].
