Search and Rescue Handlers

Warren Van Der Merwe

About Surrey SAR

Surrey SAR is a volunteer organisation on call 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to assist Surrey Police and other Emergency Services.

"Our primary role is to assist in locating lost or missing vulnerable people within Surrey and its surrounding areas".

Surrey SAR is entirely reliant on sponsorship and donations to exist and carry out its work.

Why Warren got involved in SAR

In 2010 Warren was looking for an interesting way to help the community after spending a few years in the emergency services.

The dogs

Warren and his wife own two dogs…Zazu, a one year old Border Collie, and Nala, a two year old Border Collie, who competes in Agility.

Warren’s most memorable success?

"Passing Zazu’s Level Two assessment and then getting a callout straight after.  That was a very long but awesome day” 

For more information Warren can be contacted via the teams website: http://www.sursar.org.uk/
