We Need Your Support
Tees River Rescue needs urgent funds to maintain our patrols on the River Tees, can you help?

Tees River Rescue aims to protect life on the River Tees
by deploying volunteers to patrol the Tees and to provide search and rescue alongside Emergency Services.

We are independent and rely on public donations and sponsors to
fund our patrols on our boat "Adjutor" and to deploy volunteers to patrol, search and rescue.

Why do we need Tees River Rescue

The River Tees is a jewel in the crown of the Tees Valley
making sure everyone can use the river safely and enjoy it is our primary aim.

  • River Rescue

    Being able to provide an independent rescue facility alongside Fire & Rescue will help our emergency services and save lives.

  • Regular Patrols

    Providing regular patrols helps to provide a visble safety presence and can prevent issues before they arise.

  • Education

    Providing education on water safety and increasing public awareness of basic self rescue.

  • Additional Resource

    Providing an additional resource and capability to river users in times of high demand or need.

  • First Responder

    All our crews will be trained (funding dependent) in basic first aid and man over board techniques to provide a first response.

  • Partnerships

    We don't do this work alone and rely on our partners and supporters to help us.
