Search & Rescue Dogs Association Will Be Marshalling the Garth Checkpoint

The Reservoir Action Group would like to thank the Search and Rescue Dogs Association (South Wales) for marshalling the Garth Mountain Checkpoint on this year's event.

SARDA (South Wales) Mountain Rescue Search Dogs are a fantastic charity who specialise in searching for lost, injured or missing people in hostile terrain and extreme weather conditions.

Working with the Police, Mountain Rescue teams, and other emergency services, their search-dog teams cover large areas quicker and more effectively than human-only search teams. Missing people are found sooner and lives are saved.

Their handlers are all volunteers, who come from a variety of different backgrounds. All have day jobs, searching and training with SARDA South Wales is done in their spare time. Handlers and dogs are always ready to respond 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to calls in urban, rural or mountainous areas across South Wales and further afield.
