York Rescue Boat

York River Rescue is a charity and organisation that helps with the safety of the rivers around York. They also focus on patrols with teams on the river and on foot. I was luckily enough to be invited to experience the hard work they put into every shift, and learn about the equipment they use and training.

They also show awareness and teach young people the safety and dangers of the river and visit schools, colleges and universities.


Not only do they patrol, they also talk to vulnerable people and make sure they are safe and help with local flooding.
