NWRLR have positions for everyone and training is provided, so if you drive a vehicle from a car to a van to a 4X4 you can make a difference by becoming a responder! Non-drivers are also welcome as we have plenty of support roles! Anyone can join, so visit our membership page for more information on joining us in our quest to help others.
In October 2021 members of our team completed the Defra Module 3 Swift Water Rescue (SRT) course, meaning we now have a full water rescue team available. We also have members of the team who are trained in the Defra Module 1 Water Awareness course, meaning support can be given to the main SRT team. Training is still on-going as we aim to expand and improve our flood team.
