Visit to Mallow Search and Rescue, Tuesday 3 March

A few UCCSAC members have arranged to pay a visit to Mallow Search and Rescue on Tuesday 3 March at 19.30. Anybody who would like to come along is welcome to join us to find out more about what they do and what our club might be able to do to help. They’ll show us the equipment they use and talk about the training that they do.

Mallow SAR have been undertaking water-based searches for missing persons and providing boat cover for events throughout Ireland for over 30 years. They do a lot of good work that is sometimes very tough. Not everybody is cut out for search-and-rescue diving, but Mallow also need shore and surface support and help with fundraising, so there are lots of ways in which UCCSAC could contribute. If you’ve been thinking about getting involved in some voluntary work then this might be a good fit for you.

So, if you’re planning to drive up to Mallow and can offer lifts to other people, then please let me know (sdob@cs.ucc.ie) so that I can tell the unit how many people to expect. Please also get in touch if you would like to go up but need transport.

I’ll have more information for interested people closer to the date.
