Tees River Rescue. Making the Tees a safe place for all to enjoy

Patrol Search Rescue

Tees River Rescue is an independent rescue charity based on the River Tees in the North East of England.

As well as providing search and rescue, we patrol the River at peak times throughout the year and provide education, support and reassurance for river users up and down the 26.7 miles of navigable river.

As a charity, we rely on support from the public, local businesses, supporters and our volunteers. Tees River Rescue has no paid staff and receives no government funding. As an independent inland lifeboat we aim to be on call 24/7 at the request of emergency services and to provide patrols at key times.

3 of our volunteers have been out on a patrol up to Preston Park Museum and Grounds this afternoon. Aside from capturing this glorious photo, they helped to rescue a Labrador.The dog had entered the water at a spot where it couldn't get back out, and our crew were in the right place at the right time to offer assistance to the owner and prevent him entering the water.#staysafey#volunteersteers ...
