Date: 17th Apr 2024

Time: Arrive from 7.30pm for 8.00pm start

Location: Great Blakenham Village Hall

Wednesday 17th April, when there will be a presentation by   

Paul Wesley
Search Manager, Training Officer, and Drone Lead
for Suffolk Lowland Search and Rescue (SULSAR)

The subject will be ‘SULSAR, Who, When, Where and How.’
If there is time, Paul will show and explain some of the kit they use.

Lowland Rescue teams specialise in finding missing people using foot-teams, dog-teams and drones, often over large areas of wilderness and without knowing where the person is to begin with. Suffolk Lowland Search and Rescue is a 100% voluntary specialist search team which helps the emergency services find missing vulnerable adults and children. They are on-call 24 hours a day, with a team of 60+ people to respond across Suffolk and surrounding areas.  They are normally called out by Suffolk Constabulary, but they also respond to calls from the Fire service and other search teams in neighbouring counties.

I’m sure it will be very interesting to hear just what happens when they get called out!

Great Blakenham Village Hall is situated in the centre of the village just a few miles from Ipswich.  The address is Mill Lane, Great Blakenham, Ipswich IP6 0NJ.

Arrive from 7.30pm for refreshments before the meeting starts at 8pm.
