Hello from the United Kingdom Gargett clan
David Gargett is another Gargett from England. David works with Rapid UK and here is what he has to say about it – RAPID UK is a Non Govt Organisation consisting of volunteers (35 of us in total at the moment) Ready to deploy anywhere in the world as a self sufficient Search and Rescue Team. The team is made up of folks from the Fire, Paramedic and Police services as well Ex Military and many other fields – we have a building engineer and a few crisis and disaster people… all in all a very good team with vast experience.
The team has been very successful and during the last major earthquake in Pakistan managed over a period of 5 days to rescue 7 people from a collapsed building. Rapid also have a number of projects running worldwide with local teams training in preparedness… Peru. Pakistan, Oman, Costa Rica, India and a few other places… we also supply Ex UK Fire Engines and Ambulances to other volunteers worldwide..
