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.

Great joint working. Also a reminder if someone is in the water, do not enter to save them. Use Shout, Reach, Throw and call 999.#volunteersmakeadifference #JESIPRiver rescue in York 👇 At just after 1.30am this morning (Monday 13 May 2024) we responded to reports that a person was in the River Ouse near to Ouse Bridge. We alerted the Fire Service and the York Rescue Boat who deployed to the scene along with the Ambulance Service. Three people were rescued from the water, two of them were members of the public who entered to try and rescue the initial person. All three were taken to hospital as a precaution.NYP Ref: 12240083585 ... See MoreSee Less

Huge thanks go out today to our latest generous sponsor. Hargreaves, leaders in land regeneration, property and infrastructure development, have generously donated £850 to cover the cost of our essential command and control software for 12 months. Amazingly when managers Trevor and Stefan came to meet some of our Trustees for a tour recently, they also followed up with donations of additional office equipment and appliances to improve our training and welfare facilities. The charity is extremely thankful to Hargreaves for their generous support. ... See MoreSee Less

Today we are at the Dementia Friendly Stockton 6th Business Awards Ceremony at Princess Alexandra Auditorium, Yarm, celebrating how far the town has come in the last 12 months and all the good work that is happening. If you haven’t already taken advantage of the free Dementia Friends training from Stockton Borough Council we highly recommend it. Our team enjoyed and really benefitted from it, and it will definitely make our volunteers more aware and able to deal with situations involving people with dementia and their families. ...
