Oban Mountain Rescue Team

Charity description

Oban Mountain Rescue is a team of 30 volunteers who provide search and rescue cover within the North and West Argyll and Islands area.

Oban Mountain Rescue Team provides search and rescue cover for an area covering the northwest of Argyll from Bridge of Orchy to Campbeltown and the islands including Mull and Jura. The team consists of 30 civilian volunteers who are first and foremost mountaineers. Every member is also an emergency first aider. The team was formed in 2001 at the request of the Strathclyde Chief Constable and is under the control of and insured by the Police Service. Our primary role is search and rescue within the mountains and upland areas, however we may also be used by the police for missing person searches and any other situation where they would normally have difficulty operating. The team has charitable status and also receives some funding via the Mountain Rescue Committee of Scotland which is the governing body for all the Scottish Civilian Mountain Rescue Teams. The team normally responds to between 15 and 20 call-outs a year.

Charity No: SC 031761
