Teams and regions

Mountain Rescue England and Wales is a registered charity comprising members of mountain rescue teams and regions and representatives from cave rescue.

There are nine mountain rescue regions and 48 teams. All these organisations are independent charities, made up entirely by volunteers.

Search dog handlers are team members who undertake extra specialist training with their dogs. There are five dog groups within MREWSARDA England, SARDA Wales, SARDA South Wales, Lake District MRSD and NSARDA.

Cave rescue teams frequently work alongside mountain rescue and The British Cave Rescue Council is represented at MREW.
