SARA is an Inshore Rescue boat and Land Search organisation covering the Severn Estuary and the surrounding area.

Search and Rescue
SARA is an Inshore Rescue boat and Land Search organisation covering the Severn Estuary and the surrounding area.  It provides these services 24/7, 365 days of the year, with volunteer members based at Stations in Chepstow, Sharpness, Newport, Gloucester, Tewkesbury and Kidderminster.
Our Lifeboats are tasked by the Coastguard to incidents in and around the Severn Estuary.  We also support the Police and Fire & Rescue Services on inland rivers including the Severn, Wye, Usk, Avon, Monnow and Ebbw.
SARA has a number of Swiftwater Rescue Teams, these crew specialise in the rescue of endangered persons from fast moving and flood water incidents, and deploy nationally in major flood incidents.
SARA also has Land Search Teams, including Search Controllers, that are often deployed on search and rescue operations, usually to search for missing persons.  
SARA also provides cliff and steep ground rescue capability and is a member of Mountain Rescue England & Wales (MREW).
