WMSAR is a professional search and rescue team based in Shropshire, Herefordshire and Worcestershire. We are on-call 24-hours a day to respond with the emergency services whenever a life is in danger.
We have working agreements with the Police and Fire Services across our region.
However, we are a registered charity, and nobody in the team is paid for their time.
WMSAR is 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 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.
