Dumfries and Galloway RAYNET

Voluntary Community and Emergency Radio Communications









We Can Help

Dumfries and Galloway Raynet Group can provide radio communications to assist organisers with the safety of events.  Members of the Group will not replace marshals but will assist by passing messages from marshals to the control.  Operators may be provided at fixed points, e.g. checkpoints, in vehicles, e.g. sweeping vehicles at runs or walks, and in some cases provide operators to walk with a group of people.  In the case of a safety incident operators may be moved to provide better communications at the incident.

All our equipment is battery powered, hence there is no need for mains electricity.  The equipment will provide communications in areas where mobile phones do not work. All our members are covered by Public Liability and Personal Accident Insurance while on the Group’s business. The Group has a mobile control trailer which can be used as a control centre at an event.
