HebMRT are raising money to host a temporary team base. This will provide a vital space for call-out and training purposes. We need £15,000 and your help to do so

A few team members being lowered on a training exerciseThe Hebrides Mountain Rescue team (HebMRT) is the youngest team associated with Scottish mountain rescue. We are a team of volunteers (unpaid) tasked to perform duties that include mountain rescue, search and rescue and committee resilience. The team is on call 24 hours a day 365 days a year irrespective of whatever the harsh hebridean weather can throw at us.


Up until now the team have been operating out of Stornoway police station, now we have grown in size, skill and most importantly capabilities the team requires space of our own. This is where we need your help!

We would like to raise enough money to buy and convert a portacabin into an operational command centre. This includes everything from equipment storage area, radio communications and of course the kitchen sink.

With your donations and the success of this project we will help improve the team’s ability to respond to call-outs. This may help provide vital time that could help save someone’s life. This temporary team base would also offer several other benefits that include providing indoor space for training whether its advanced medical techniques or beginner map reading.


We hope this has briefly demonstrated the requirement for a team base and hope that we can continue to build the team skills, keeping the people that love the outdoors safe.
