The team was asked to take a callout for @wasdalemrt last night as they were holding their AGM.
Team members went to the aid of two well-equipped, experienced hillwalkers who were lost on the descent into Mosedale.
Well done search dog Roxy (and her human, Tom) on her first locate.
The team are on standby 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, and have been since 1962. We cover an area of approximately 655km², are all unpaid volunteers, and as a charity we rely on donations to provide the service we do.
If you can, please consider supporting the team and making a donation by clicking the ‘Donate’ button on this page. It’s quick, easy, all money donated comes directly to the team, and is very much appreciated.
We are currently fundraising for a permanent base and donations towards this are very welcome.
Thank you for your support from all of us here at #DFMRT
