Hampshire Search and Rescue (HANTSAR) is a voluntary organisation which works alongside the police in searches for vulnerable missing persons in Hampshire.

HANTSAR is one of many county based Lowland Search and Rescue units which exist countrywide. Like other units in the country we are affiliated to Lowland Rescue (Association of Lowland Search and Rescue) which forms part of the UK Search and Rescue Operators Group alongside Mountain Rescue and other organisations.

We are always looking to recruit more members for both our search and supporter teams and are especially keen on hearing from people who are medically trained, water rescue trained and available during office hours.

To find out if our recruitment window is open please look through the Join The Team section.

HANTSAR is a registered charity raising its own funds to provide search and rescue services throughout Hampshire and receives no external funding.
