Welcome to the Waterford City River Rescue Website

During the COVID 19 Pandemic Waterford City River Rescue has remained completely active and responsive to emergency Call Outs. During the COVID 19 crisis our crew have responded to 7 emergency Call Outs. We have complied with all government and HSE guidelines while still maintaining our essential duties. 

COVID 19 has inhibited our ability to raise funds to help keep our unit and services operational. If you would like to donate to Waterford City River Rescue we would be very grateful. We would like to thank the public for their continued support.

Welcome to Waterford City River Rescue. We are a non-profit organisation which operates a voluntary Search and Rescue Service on the River Suir from Mount Congreve to Cheekpoint. Our volunteers provide this essential service on a 24 hour basis, 365 days a year.

We are a member of the Community Rescue Boats of Ireland (CRBI) and affiliated to the Irish Coast Guard, having successfully completed their stringent assessments and examinations of crew and equipment.

Our crews are all volunteers and are trained and equipped to the highest standards and are subject to annual assessments by the CRBI and, or the Irish Coast Guard, which ensures that the highest professional standards are maintained.

Waterford City River Rescue as a voluntary organization must seek funding through sponsorship and donations from the public, in order to provide a professional service to our community. To this end, Waterford City River Rescue requests businesses and members of the public to support our fundraising activities.

A donation box is available on this site, to allow you to make a donation to Waterford City River Rescue. All donations will be gratefully appreciated and will assist Waterford City River Rescue in continuing to provide this service to our community.

Please remember if you see anyone in difficulty on our Lakes, Rivers or Coast, Call 999 or 112 and ask for The Irish Coast Guard

A beautiful sunny and still morning on the River Suir πŸ’™

Waterford City River Rescue CRBI

A very important message from our friend Oscar. Please remember if you see anyone in difficulty on our Lakes, Rivers or Coast, Call 999 or 112 and ask for The Irish Coast Guard who will dispatch the services needed to the scene, Do not assume somebody has already made that call.
