Midshires Search & Rescue Asset Tagging

We’ve been delighted to be able to offer our support this month to Midshires Search and Rescue

MSAR are the lowland search and rescue organisation operated by a team of trained volunteers responsible for searching for missing and vulnerable people in the Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire Counties

According to the midshires.org.uk website...

We can be called to assist other Lowland search teams in major incidents in neighbouring areas, and we are also able to assist in civil emergency situations.

We may be mobilised at short notice to search for a missing person in woodland, quarries, watercourses, nature reserves, farmland, towns and villages. Operating in all weathers, 24/7, 365 days a year, our search teams can save lives. Families and friends of missing people appreciate that a group of specialist volunteers have been ready and able to give their time to search for their loved one.

When MSAR contacted us with a requirement for asset labelling to track and identify their kit we offered to step in and donate a quantity of asset labels as our contribution to their valued work. Keeping an accurate record and inventory of valuable life saving equipment is very important and our asset labels provided the solution they needed.

With our office being close to the river Severn we’ve seen first hand the incredible work conducted by counterpart rescue organisations and felt our contribution of a quantity of asset tags was the least we could do.

Midshires Search and Rescue is 100% voluntary and all of our funding comes from their fundraising events and from donations. Check out the ways to help and support on their website and Facebook pages
