Please Donate Now
Humber Rescue is entirely dependant on donations from the public and the generosity of local businesses to maintain and improve their service.
You will be answered by HM Coastguard who will scramble Humber Rescue via a paging system. If your vessel is in the upper Rivers Humber, Trent or Ouse your call may be answered by VTS (Vessel Traffic Services). They will inform HM Coastguard who will alert Humber Rescue.
If you see anything suspicious on or in the water, flares, clothing hoisted on a ship or yachts mast, people waving or persons walking around on sandbanks, DIAL 999 and ask for the Coastguard. The operator will connect you through to the Coastguard Rescue Centre at Bridlington who will alert Humber Rescue by pager system.
Humber Rescue will launch to check out the situation. Humber Rescue would prefer to be called out, even if it turns out to be a false alarm, rather than to arrive too late!
