The equipment is
transported in the team's Ford Transit van. The van is used as
a mobile communication base in the event of an incident. Contained in the van are such items as basket
stretcher, spinal board, first aid bags, ropes, climbing harnesses and other cliff rescue equipment, together
with hand-held VHF radios for inter-team communications. In addition to the van, the unit also has a
