National Statistics

Military search and rescue annual: 2015

2015 statistical annual of search and rescue (SAR) by military units in the UK, Falklands and Cyprus.


Summary statistics on the number of search and rescue (SAR) incidents, the associated callouts and people assisted by military units in the UK and Overseas (Falklands and Cyprus).

As described in a consultation, the current mix of military and civilian search and rescue capacity is transitioning to a single civilian contract, managed by the Department for Transport. Therefore the production of military SAR statistics by MOD will cease in February 2016.
