SULSAR provides much equipment to search members when training or on call. This includes Icom IC-F12 VHF Personal radios. Also available to searchers are Satmap GPS & Garmin Foretrex 201 Wristband GPS units. These are allocated to each search team which enables them to pass a map reference of their location to control.
SULSAR tries to provide all searchers with Uni-Lite rechargeable torches and has also purchased 4 tent shelters. These are easy and quick to put up and are used when no other shelter is available for searchers.
All SULSAR members need to bring their own personal equipment & clothing (see photo above) to all training sessions, and call outs. These include: Hi-Vis vest (provided by SULSAR at intake training), waterproofs, walking boots, personal first aid kit, pen & paper. Some members also have their own torches, gaiters, pen knives etc. Also a little food is recommended for longer searches (cereal bars are ideal), also a flask for hot drinks.
SULSAR members also benefit from discounts in some retail stores so members can purchase their own equipment when necessary.
