Meet all of our the team and read their profiles.



Watersafe UK SAR is run entirely by volunteers, we are totally reliant on the support and generosity of the public to keep the rescue team active. 100% of your donation will go to the teams operational costs. You really can make a difference!



If you are a person who enjoys late nights, being away from home, freezing rain, wind and snow, fast moving water and still able to keep your head as part of a professional and dynamic rescue team, then we would like to hear from you.



WUKSART was originally established in response to the National Flood Enhancement Project led by the Department of the Environment, Food & Rural Affairs (DEFRA) in 2009. This Government led project was designed to officially collate all the water rescue assets around the United kingdom and type them against National standards with the aim that when National widespread flooding takes place these assets can be called upon.


Our purpose and aim is to provide response and support to the official Emergency Services in a range of situations, including water rescues, flood relief and support during times of adverse weather conditions, natural disaster or civil emergency, searches for missing people and be able to provide support at incidents as required.


We want to share our dedication for providing the best possible care to the people and the communities in which we live, work and play. To this end all our team members are all professionals sharing a passion for saving lives.


We can provide a team of volunteers who have the required skills, experience and local knowledge, as well as the necessary equipment and communications facilities, to be able to be of genuine assistance to the paid Emergency Services. We will provide this service at any time of the day or night, without charge, in any situation where one of the official Emergency Services or other approved organisations decides that their efforts would benefit from the support we can offer.
