For the past three years WILSAR have attended the Seend Village Summer Fete to display our control van and equipment and to marshall the two very busy car parks.

We’ve had a good ongoing relationship with the village holding many training exercises there and several live callouts.

It’s always nice to engage with the community and show them who the people they see in hi-vis jackets descending on the village’s fields and footpaths are and what we’re doing!

WILSAR are recruiting!

Wiltshire Search and Rescue (WILSAR) are recruiting! Do you know someone who has the passion, time and energy to be part of a busy Search and Rescue team? WILSAR are looking for potential new trainee members, and are holding an open evening in Devizes on the 15th of July. Here you will meet some of the team and gain an insight into what we do and what we expect from our volunteers. We will be looking to take on and train 6-10 new volunteers beginning almost straight away.

For more information, venue and times, please email membership@wilsar.org.uk with a little bit about yourself and why you’re interested in volunteering with WILSAR.

WE LOOK FORWARD TO HEARING FROM YOU…

Wiltshire Search and Rescue needs you!

Wednesday 14th January 2015. Today two of our Team took part in Integrated Emergency Management training with Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service, South Western Ambulance Service, Wiltshire Police and The Environment Agency.

These sessions allow WILSAR to ensure a high level of preparedness to work with other emergency responders in the event of a major incident in Wiltshire.

The training was provided by The Wiltshire and Swindon Local Resilience Forum. Visit their website www.wiltshireandswindonprepared.org.uk to find out more about how professional emergency services and responders work together in a crisis.
