Saving lives in wild and remote places

Since being formed in 1965 Scarborough & Ryedale Mountain Rescue volunteers have worked to help people enjoying the countryside. Deploying to help outdoor enthusiasts continues but has diversified from just hill walkers to include mountain bikers, horse riders and people simply enjoying the great outdoors when something goes wrong. Increasingly though the Police and other statutory blue light services use us to help find those with mental health issues and missing from home, be that suffering from the likes of Dementia, Alzheimer’s or those intent to self-harm or worse.
