West Mercia Search & Rescue find people who are at risk from mental ill-health, physical injury, hazardous terrain or water, and ensure their safety.

We are called out by the Police and Fire Services when help is needed in locating vulnerable people in Shropshire, Herefordshire or Worcestershire.

We are a registered charity, and nobody in the team is paid for their time.

100% of all donations go towards running the operational rescue team.



WMSAR_ASSESS-20We are the official Lowland Rescue unit for the West Mercia Police area, operating as part of the UK’s rescue backbone alongside Mountain Rescue, the Coastguard, RNLI and Lifeguards.we-are-lowland-rescue

We are also a registered DEFRA Flood Rescue Boat team, and can be called to respond anywhere in the country when flooding occurs.


We need your help to continue this life-saving service – all of our equipment, overheads and training is paid for by charitable donations and grants. Please consider donating, getting sponsored, or getting your company involved with us.
