The British Cave Rescue Council (BCRC) is the Representative body for voluntary underground rescue in the British Isles.
Formed in 1967 to represent and support its members at National and International level, promote the exchange of information between member rescue organisations and provide a common voice for them. The BCRC is a coordinating and not a governing body, the individual cave rescue organisations remain entirely autonomous and independent.
The locations and details of the 15 volunteer underground rescue organisations that are members of the British Cave Rescue Council can be found on the Rescue Teams pages.
In an emergency if you need the assistance of a cave rescue team you should dial 999 and ask for the Police, then for Cave Rescue.
