Several of the team were involved in a rather unusual callout on the weekend whilst on a SARDA (Search And Rescue Dog Association) training weekend. Two dog handlers and a ‘body’ were involved in training at Holming Beam, near Princetown, when we were alerted to a Ten Tors team reporting two injured members on Beardown Tor. After an initial assessment, Dartmoor Search and Rescue Team – Tavistock were requested to send their Landrover with stretcher up to help, and a small group of dog handlers and bodies were able to evacuate the injured walkers safely off the moor to their team bus. In a great multi-team effort, the stretcher carry-off involved members from Dartmoor SRT – Tavistock, Dartmoor SRT – Plymouth, Cornwall SRT, Woodhead MRT, Bolton MRT, Longtown MRT, Derby MRT, Buxton MRT and even Westward Ho! Coastguard.
