Plymouth University's partnership with Dartmoor Search and Rescue Team Plymouth

Our longstanding partnership with Dartmoor Search and Rescue Team Plymouth (DSRTP) is creating valuable opportunities enhancing the Plymouth University staff and student experience.

Acting as casualties and sharing Plymouth University’s modern facilities to enhance the training experience in preparation for real search & rescue missions, exploring collaborative research opportunities supporting DSRTP in becoming the first dementia friendly search and rescue team, this mutually beneficial partnership is making a real impact. The Plymouth University Trainee Scheme has seen students as fully badge search and rescue workers. ​
