York Rescue Boat is a charity set up to provide a physical and proactive commitment to furthering the safety of the rivers in and around York.
We achieve this with weekend foot and river patrols in York, and on special event requests, combined with a programme of education and awareness in schools, colleges and universities. In addition we have a fully trained team on stand-by as an auxiliary service for Search & Rescue and community flood assistance.
We also have a nationally declared flood rescue team which can be called upon 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, in times of severe flooding.
We are all volunteers and are funded by the generosity of the public. You can donate find out more by visiting www.yorkrescueboat.com
