After two years of fundraising, the Tweed Valley Mountain Rescue Team has taken delivery of their new incident control vehicle.
The £70,000 incident control unit has increased technical capabilities and provides some much needed comfort for the volunteers. Lori Carnochan reports:
Members of the Tweed Valley Mountain Rescue team have been getting to grips with their new vehicle.
It's taken two years to raise the £67,000 needed for the response van, which is filled with the latest high-tech gadgets to assist the team on call-outs.
The 40 team members are being trained on how to use all of the technology. It surpasses the capabilities of the old response vehicle which had far less communication functions.
The vehicle has been funded by the local community and also a number of larger donors.
Mountain rescue teams in the Lake District are urging people to take care in the mountains over the Christmas and New Year periods.
Bad weather can often mean rise in call-outs for the teams across Cumbria.
They also say people need also to have the right equipment and maps.
