Merseyside Lowland Search and Rescue (MERSAR) visits Southport

THE newest volunteer emergency response charity has been gearing up for a very busy summer. Although primarily based on the Wirral, Merseyside Lowland Search and Rescue (MERSAR) is on call for the whole of Merseyside, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, under the direction of the local emergency services, like Merseyside Fire and Rescue Service and the Police.

In 2016, for example, the team assisted the search for a missing boy, at Formby Point, along with other services, including the Coastguard. They are the equivalent to the Mountain Rescue and every member is a volunteer, meaning that no charge is made for the Team's services. But just as with Mountain Rescue, the team members are highly qualified and to put them through the training requires donations to pay for the training and equipment. The team have been in Southport a few times and on 22 April 2017, they popped over this time, to set up shop on Lord Street, Southport, to do a collection.

But the mostly important part of it was to make people aware of them and what they do. Now with more members qualified, they are getting ready to help with more emergencies. Currently the team has 25 active members, that includes' Heart Paramedics, Swift Water Rescue Technicians and a team Doctor. They also have a host of other volunteers with other skills in training.

If you can lend a hand and help them to save lives, please do get in contact with them.
