What Costs are involved?
We provide a uniform (polo shirts, jackets and hi vis jacket) and ID card. If you do not have any clothing/outdoor equipment you will need to equip yourself to the standard required by HANTSAR. See the Personal Equipment List FAQ for more details. You will be expected to have most of the core equipment after a few months. You must have all the equipment prior to going on searches. HANTSAR will provide items such as radios, advanced first aid kit and any personal protection equipment that may be required.
Membership costs are currently £15 a year, and there is a fee for the training course to become operational.
Members have to pay their own travel costs for training and callouts. Unfortunately we are unable to reimburse travel expenses.
