Control Vehicle

Our custom built Renault Master control vehicle provides communications and search management facilities. Self contained with its own power supply, it can operate in any location and carries support equipment for the team. The trailer, funded by a grant from the Big Lottery Fund, is specially racked out to hold our larger equipment such as bikes, kayaks and Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for water search and flood response.
