Ulverston Inshore Rescue was set up by Stan Lewis & Jim Prosser after many tragedies on the dangerous Bay Sands.
The concept was brought to life 15 years ago with basic equipment and a limited crew, we now have 15 volunteers, and various pieces of specialist rescue kit that is available 24 hours ad 7 days a week.
Without the dedication and hour after hour of fund raising by Pat Prosser none of this would be here today.
15 CREW AVAILABLE 24/7
2 4 X 4 RESCUE VEHICLES
2 X RESCUE BOATS
1 X RESCUE HOVERCRAFT
2 X RESCUE QUAD BIKES
ULVERSTON INSHORE RESCUE SWIFT WATER TEAM
A big thank you to INS who sponsored all our Swift Water Gear without their help we would not be able to operate.
All our Swift water technicians are trained to the SWT Defra Level 2 / 3 / 5 so we can attend all incidents.
Our on-going training has been along side other emergency services so we keep our skills current skill levels to the highest standards.
