Welcome to the Cornwall Search and Rescue Team website.

Cornwall SRT is a registered charity that provides a search and rescue service for missing, lost and injured people 24/7, 365 days a year across the whole of inland Cornwall. Since 2019 the operational response to incidents has been undertaken by two new charities, established to meet the changing needs of search and rescue across the county.


Both teams also operate a specialist mine rescue team which covers the disused workings across the county. CSRT now provides administrative, operational and funding support to these two organisations.

Please visit the two teams to find out more about their work:
