Recruitment drive for missing persons search team in Co Armagh

The Community Rescue Service – which provides a search and response for missing persons across the Province – is staging a recruitment drive for volunteers in Counties Armagh and Down.

And a public meeting will take place in the Portadown Legion premises on Monday, January 12, at 7.30pm for anyone who wants to help.

CRS is recruiting volunteers specifically in the Armagh, Lurgan, Portadown and Banbridge areas to form a search team for missing people.

It is hoped that as many people as possible will take the opportunity to attend the information evening.

CRS volunteers are trained to standards as set by ALSAR, the ACPO and the National Occupational Standards agreed by Skills for Justice in relation to all aspects of search for missing persons.

They provide crisis intervention, suicide intervention, rural and urban search, water rescue, community support and education.
