Waterford City River Rescue | River Rescue Service Waterford



Welcome to the Waterford City River Rescue Website


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 Checkpoint. 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.
