In terms of mountain rescue teams (in Scotland anyway) the members are volunteers who climb themselves. I know a few who say they do it because they like to think there would be some who would do it for them. I was once told a story regarding the Glen coe MRT. Apparently the person they rescued most often was the leader of the Glen coe MRT.

Mountain rescue teams carry rescue apparatus, so in fair weather travel light and fast without much personal kit. If one of the team needs help, they radio for assistance giving an exact location.
