Cheshire Search And Rescue (CSAR) are a team of volunteers who are on call 24 hours per day, 365 days per year and are ready to deploy in any weather. We receive no government funding whatsoever. The team is extremely well trained and equipped and we assist Cheshire police and other statutory emergency services. We are proud members of the Association of Lowland Search and Rescue and train and work with local Mountain Rescue teams.

Last night at 01:30hrs we were contacted by Cheshire Police regarding a very serious concern for the welfare of a male. We were being asked to help coordinate and take part in an inter-agency cross border search for this high risk male. As plans and preparations were underway we were stood down after the male had been located. Cheshire Police passed on their huge thanks for our willingness to assist with this, especially at the time of day.
Today, team members are fundraising at Morrisons in Congleton.
