Communicating a Unified Vision for UK Lowland Search and Rescue

The Association of Lowland Search & Rescue (ALSAR) is taking the lead in developing more effective search and rescue (SAR) voice and data communications. Lowland Rescue has built a secure, digital two-way radio communications network using Motorola Solutions technology to drive a vision for search and rescue communications interoperability. The intention is to bring resource from all relevant organisations to a single point to improve search and rescue. “The Police Service has to do more with less and is becoming increasingly more reliant on professional volunteers,” says Kris Manning, chairman, Lowland Rescue. “Developing mission-critical communications solutions that bring our teams and hopefully other SAR organisations onto a single, interoperable network is one of our responses to this challenge.”
