Welcome to Staffordshire’s Lowland Search & Rescue Team, working in partnership with Staffordshire Police, West Midlands Ambulance Service, Staffordshire Fire and Rescue and Staffordshire Civil Contingencies Unit.
We are Staffordshire’s only approved volunteer lowland search & rescue team; with specialist training in locating and rescuing missing people in urban and rural lowland areas.
Staffordshire Search & Rescue Team (SSART) is a highly skilled team of dedicated volunteers who give up a lot of their own valuable time to provide a service to the emergency services in the utmost professional manner.
Although based primarily in Staffordshire, SSART often venture outside of the county to assist neighbouring Lowland Rescue teams on callouts. We also provide fully equipped 4×4 vehicles to assist with evacuation, recovery & logistics during adverse weather wherever we may be required.
The team is funded entirely through donations from the public and local businesses, so when we are not on a call out or training, we are kept busy raising essential funds throughout the year to keeping the team operational.
