Urban Search and Rescue, we conduct regular training led by members of the fire and rescue service enabling us to work safely on rubble piles and in other hazardous environments.
We respond to both domestic and international flooding, providing a highly skilled team to conduct rescues in swift water or support local communities to mitigate the risks of flooding.
Using our experitse from training our own members, we aim to take our skills abroad and share our skills with local communities with the objective of them being able to keep themselves safe and assist other communities if disaster should strike.

- Our Mission
How you can get involved
Join our fundraising team and support the work we are trying to achieve all over the world. This is ideal for those who want to help but do not have enough time to be operational or prefer to keep their feet dry (ish).
Join and get trained up to be an operational/non-operational member. There are many tasks that need to be done, not only on the front line. We have many different roles to fit your skill set whether that be operationally, helping us improve our website, or whatever your area of expertise and background.
SPEAR SAR has an experienced panel of technical advisers. If you are a senior and experienced medical or rescue professional and do not have enough time to volunteer as an operational member. You can still aid the team by donating your time and advice.
Using our expertise from training our own members, we aim to take our skills abroad and share them with local communities. The objective is to train and equip these communities to be able to keep themselves safe and assist others if disaster should strike. We will also of course be on hand should they require international assistance.
We'd like to say thank you to all the people and organisations who have helped us towards our mission. Without their support we would be unable to assist those who are suffering and stop others from being exposed to danger.
Volunteers from all walks of life, who have come together to reduce the loss of life and suffering resulting from natural disasters.
