SARAID relies on its dedicated network of supporters to help meet the costs of running and training an Urban Search and Rescue Team. SARAID receives all its money from public donations, fundraising or through corporate sponsorship. We would like to take this opportunity to thank the organisations and company's listed below for all their ongoing support.
Our tool choice is our very important, on overseas deployments there are no shops to return our tools to if they don't work! We chose Makita as they concentrate exclusively on professional power tools and have a huge range, important when you need powerful but compact rotary hammer drill for an upward breach.. www.makitauk.com
When it comes to looking after our guys personal safety, Scott's Full Face Masks have become the common choice due to their comfort, fit and trusted protection. Full face respirators are essential when it comes to confined space USAR work and the Vision2 is the latest high performance full facemask. www.scottint.com
Cotswold Outdoor is where we buy our gear, waterproof jackets that are built to last, sleeping bags that pack down to nothing and professional level headtorches and GPS, all essential for our deployments. The guys in store really know their stuff, I have heard some of them even want to join our team! www.cotswoldoutdoor.com
S.A.R.A.I.D. are extremely grateful to Hertz UK for their support by providing hire vehicles from a reliable, modern fleet from a variety of location throughout the UK to give us greater flexibility when responding to disasters and transporting team members and equipment around the UK, Europe and Worldwide. Hertz UK can be contacted via www.hertz.co.uk
We have found Vestey Foods to understand all of operational issues and supply us with our 'mission critical' team supplies at an affordable price, very vital for a UK charity and just as important as our search cameras and sattelite phones.
Having a large supply of stock and to be able to supply rations at short notice is beneficial when you have two overseas deployments close together.
We look forward to continuing our relationship with Vestey, who knows what's next, perhaps menu advice? Loving the Tangy Salmon Pasta guys, by the way. www.vesteyfoods.com
