Harrisburg River Rescue And Emergency Services Inc



 
Mission Statement
Harrisburg River Rescue is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, 100% volunteer organization which provides community-based, high quality, cost effective water rescue and emergency services for the residents of the south-central Pennsylvania region that started over 50 years ago.

 
Our Mission: To provide volunteer emergency search and rescue services to persons suffering because of fire, flood, accident or other disaster. These services include water rescue and patrol, dive rescue and recovery, special fire police services, emergency first response services, water-pumping and related services, and fire and rescue services to the public. The Corporation also provides emergency search and rescue equipment and facilities to governmental agencies and other organizations assisting persons in distress, and provides emergency search and rescue services to persons in distress on area waters. The Corporation offers courses that promote safety on area waters, and offers training to the general public and to emergency personnel on boating safety and water rescue.


Our Motto: We would rather save than search.


While there are many water rescue teams in existence, River Rescue, is widely considered one of the best equipped and best trained all-volunteer units in and around the state of Pennsylvania.

Harrisburg River Rescue will be joining the Humane Society of Harrisburg and 105.7 the X's Nipsey for the annual Penquin Plunge on Thursday, January 1, 2015 on City Island in Harrisburg.

Registration begins at 10am - Plunge goes off at Noon

Participants plunge into the icy Susquehanna River to raise funds for homeless pets! This annual event has become a Harrisburg and HSHA tradition for hundreds of animal lovers, and all proceeds benefit the more than 500 homeless pets at HSHA.

Individuals who raise over $75 will receive an event towel. For teams to receive towels, each member must raise at least $75.

*The Humane Society asks that each participant make a $40 donation to HSHA.


AFTER THE PLUNGE Stop by Flinchy's Restaurant for "post-plunge" festivities with pork and sauerkraut.
