Predominantly involved in mountain incidents with walkers, scramblers and climbers, covering the mountain ranges of the Carneddau and the Glyders, the team has most of its callouts on Tryfan. They also have a number of river related incidents they can be called to. The Conwy valley is also very prone to flooding and the team have been called out to help at such events. Involved in about 120 incidents a year.
Ogwen Valley Mountain Rescue Organisation (OVMRO), or Sefydliad Achub Mynydd Dyffryn Ogwen as we are known in the native Welsh language, is a voluntary mountain rescue team responding to incidents in the mountains and valleys surrounding the Ogwen Valley, Glyderau and Carneddau mountain ranges and surrounding area in northern Snowdonia. We are on-call 24 hours a day, throughout the year. Our team is made up entirely of volunteers who have a wide variety of day jobs. Team members are all mountaineers with vast local knowledge and first aid training. Many have expertise in casualty care, emergency driving and water rescue. We are all proud of the voluntary tradition of the mountain search and rescue service. We are a registered charity and rely on donations to run our life-saving public service. There is much work to be done in raising funds to support the work we do. Annual running costs are in the region of £65,000.
