We're sending a team to Nepal

Our team of 14 fully trained rescue technicians will deploy with 1.5 tonnes of the latest rescue equipment including; sound and vibration detection equipment, as well as specialised search cameras to help locate victims trapped under buildings and cutting equipment to help tunnel into collapsed buildings to rescue them.

Geoff Parkinson: A former team member that will be sadly missed

We are deeply saddened to have to bring you the news of the death of Geoff Parkinson, a former SARAID team member.

Geoff was one of the original members of SARAID and deployed with the team on our mission to Pakistan following the earthquake in 2005, as well as the Bad Reichenhall Ice rink Collapse, Germany in 2006.

His expertise, advice and wicked sense of humour will be deeply missed.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to his wife Narkiz, his brother Des and the rest of his family and friends. RIP Geoff.
