Since 1996 the team base has been located oﬀ the Theatre by the Lake car park near the Borrowdale road. The base was purpose built to store all the necessary equipment, support rescues and provide space for training. We have now outgrown that space and a new extension is planned for 2019, watch this space.
We have five vehicles prepared and ready at all times to respond depending on the requirements of a callout. Two long wheelbase Landrover Defenders are equipped for general mountain rescue along with two 4 x 4 Mercedes Sprinters with more equipment but mostly dedicated to personnel transportation. A third Sprinter is our dedicated water and ﬂood response vehicle with an already inﬂated boat inside that can be deployed quickly if needed.
