What we do
The Ochils Mountain Rescue Team is a charitable and accredited Search and Rescue organisation. Our purpose is to locate and recover people who have found themselves in difficult situations in the outdoors. We form part of a network of over 30 voluntary teams that make up Scottish Mountain Rescue.
If you need us
Call 999 and ask for Police and then Mountain Rescue. We will respond 24 hours a days, 7 days a week, 365 days per year and in all weather conditions. Remember to pass on as many details as possible about the incident and where we should go to assist. We do not charge for our services.
Our Team is made up of around 35 mountaineers with specialist knowledge and training in Search and Rescue. Our efforts can be supported by a helicopter, other Mountain Rescue Teams and the Search and Rescue Dog Association. Annual running costs are supported by donations and fundraising efforts.
As well as Search and Rescue, the Team is active in the local community. We are keen to raise awareness about our work and ways to enjoy the outdoors as safely as possible. School and community groups are welcome to visit our Post and we are also able to provide support and first aid cover to a range of outdoor events each year.
