What We Do
We are primarily a water rescue organisation, but we're also involved with the community.
MISAR provides specialised mobile support to the Severn community alongside the army and emergency services during times of flooding and adverse weather conditions, delivering emergency medical supplies and rescuing people and pets from areas affected by floods. MISAR also provides water rescue cover for specialist water events including triathlons, rowing events, regattas, Dragon Boat events and more.
MISAR provides support to the local community especially during localised flooding in the Upton and Worcester area. When flooding threatens the town, MISAR are there to help residents in whatever way required. They deliver sandbags to those who cannot collect their own. They tow out vehicles that have become stranded in flooded roads. In 2007 flood barriers were trialled by the Environment Agency, and ever since MISAR help put the barriers up and manned the pumps which remove water from specially constructed sumps.
MISAR have an official agreement with the Environment Agency to provide trained personnel for erection of flood barriers and suitable safety cover.
Helping the Community
Upton upon Severn is a small, close-knit community and we often find one organisation helping another. MISAR is always willing consider helping out when asked, whatever the occasion.
