*** Incident No. 31 ***

Last night the team were alerted to an over due walker on the Pennine Way.
Using SARLOC the lost walker was located quickly and assisted back to The forest View in Byrness, tired and cold but otherwise well.
Thanks to The Forest View for raising the alarm and providing a well earned cuppa and hospitality in the middle of the night!

Connected Team

Today we had the opportunity to thank Northumberland National Park Authority (NNPA) for their generous grant towards the cost of our new satellite Broadband system. Accessing the Internet wherever we are is increasingly important – we need the Internet to view the incident log on SARCALL, to use tools such as SARLOC to help locate lost walkers, to track search groups on the hill and to access up-to-date weather forecasts etc.

Pictured either side of our Team Leader are Tony Gates, Chief Executive (NNPA) and Cllr Glen Sanderson, the new Chairman of the Authority.sat_internet
