Joining the canoe Team

The Teesdale and Weardale Search and Mountain Rescue Team (TWSMRT) Canoe Group assist TWSMRT with searches (and occasionally rescues) in or near water throughout County Durham. Accessing the water by boat allows inspection from a different perspective and rapid access to sections of bankside not easily reached from elsewhere. Furthermore it also allows much better searching of the water itself. The Canoe Group also help in flood conditions to access flooded areas which cannot be reached safely by other means. If you want to know more have a look at this page.

Helping with fund raising and publicity days
Fundraising and publicity events require a massive amount of man power - if you would like to support the Team at one of these events please contact the Fundraising Officer.

If you have any other suggestions for supporting the Team please email the Fundraising Officer or contact us another way.
