Cause Description

The W.M.S.A.R. service was set up in January 2010 by Declan and Darryl Barry to provide Waterford city and county with a 24 hour; 365 days-a-year search, rescue and recovery service. Since January 2010 the service has grown to 50 volunteers. We are also part of the Community Rescue Boats of Ireland ( CRBI ).

Our Volunteers : Have rescued 20 people from the waters of the River Suir. Prevented 65 people from entering the river with the intention of taking their life. Clock up over 1300 hours annually on suicide prevention patrols. Saving over 85 lives since 2010
