Our Activities

The Borders Water Rescue Team provides a water based search, rescue & recovery service in conjunction with the emergency services. We are a volunteer team, including Rescue3 qualified personnel who are able to assist with search and rescue of those individuals who have got into trouble in our many areas of water. In addition, we provide health and safety support for many water based community activities such as Common Riding water crossings, film sets & large scale obstacle courses.
