ADVENT DAY 15.....

Let’s look a little more at Safe and Dry.

#SAFE_AND_DRY is Kent Search and Rescue’s (KSAR’s) alcohol-related drowning risk awareness campaign.

It has been launched because, in the last ten years, the majority of accidental deaths of missing persons, where the KSAR team have been involved in the search for them, have been due to drowning. The problem facing KSAR, as a small charity with very limited resources, was how best to raise awareness of the risk, with a limited budget.

We were fortunate to receive a grant from the Maidstone councillors of Kent County Council. We decided to make maximum use of local t.v., radio and press coverage, regular posts on social media platforms such as Facebook and Twitter, whilst directly engaging with the owners and managers of pubs located close to Kent’s main rivers.

For these premises specially designed campaign beer mats, posters and information leaflets were provided. We also directly engaged with the public through selected venues such as shopping malls and university campus refectories.

ADVENT DAY 14.....

Supporting KSAR with TW Lotto.

As mentioned in an earlier Advent post, one of the ways people can support KSAR is to sign up to the TW Lotto.

TW Lotto is an exciting weekly lottery that raises money for good causes in Kent. All good causes supported by the lottery will benefit Kent and its residents.

Play the lottery, Support Kent - it’s that simple!

Tickets for the lottery cost just £1 per week. Each ticket has a 1 in 50 chance to win a prize each week, with a top prize of £25,000! That’s a better chance of winning than the National Lottery or the Health Lottery!

Each ticket will consist of 6 numbers and each number will be between 0 and 9. There will be a draw every Saturday night when a 6 digit winning combination will be picked. Prizes will be given to players with tickets that match the first or last 2-6 numbers from the winning combination. Match all 6 and you win the JACKPOT!

Kent Search and Rescue is a member unit of the Association of Lowland Search and Rescue (Lowland Rescue).

At a local level Kent Search and Rescue have established an excellent relationship with the Kent Police Authority and great links with Kent Ambulance ServiceKent Fire Service and HM Coastguard.

Kent Search and Rescue is registered with the Kent Voluntary Sector Emergency Group (KVSEG).

Our volunteer members are spread throughout Kent and sometimes beyond, giving us the broadest level of cover across the county.

We are always looking to recruit more volunteers as Kent is a large county and local knowledge can be extremely helpful for a successful search.

Community Initiative - At Risk of Going Missing Form

Community work for Kent Search & Rescue is about reaching out to and working with the community through campaigns and programmes to help members of the public prepare for a member of the family or loved one possibly getting lost, taking all steps to preventing this in the first place and to provide peace of mind.



This form is to be used by carers to keep key details and information of the person they care for, which will be invaluable to them, Kent Police and indeed ourselves to help us find them should they go missing. View Form>
