Bike Search Team.
Bike search teams are a key requirement for some searches.
This team is made up of Search Technicians that have also trained in, and met the Lowland Rescue Mountain Bike Search Standard.
The Bike Team is often deployed to search along routes in order to cover considerable distances quickly or to catch up with a missing person that may be ahead of them.
They are especially useful for searching particular locations as well as to cover certain types of terrain, as well as great distances more quickly than foot teams.
A major asset of the Mountain Bike Team is to be able to quickly deploy crime scene, or medical and safety equipment to foot, bank, dog and boat teams as well as seizing clues or evidence.
