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.

The river looks like the chocolate river from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory!4 volunteers were involved. 1 helm, 1 crew and 1 probationer with our incident commander who maintains radio communications with the boat and met them at Yarm for a welcome warm drink.Donations welcome to maintain our ability to patrol, search and rescue.
