Flood rescue

The RNLI Flood Rescue Team is always ready to carry out search and rescue operations wherever severe flooding puts lives at risk.

The team is made up of 28 volunteers from across the RNLI, including lifeboat crew and operational staff, all specially trained in swift water rescue.

Our flood rescue volunteers are strategically placed in two flood rescue teams.

Among our flood rescue volunteers are paramedics, logisticians and mechanics – all people doing extraordinary things with skills that are invaluable for flood relief work.
