WITSU and Waterford Marine Search and Rescue


On Friday the 23rd of September the WITSU team travelled to the new base of the Waterford Marine Search and Rescue team to check out their new facilities. WMSR were one of three charities chosen by Waterford Institute of Technology Class Reps in 2015 to receive €4,000 in proceeds from WITSU’s popular Raise and Give week (RAG week.) WMSR was set up in 2010 to provide Waterford with a much needed 24 hour rescue and recover service that runs 365 days a year on lakes, rivers and tributaries around Waterford City and County. Thanks to the aid received from WITSU, Waterford Marine Search and Rescue has been able to help assist the opening of a new base which is situated on the River Suir which means that WMSR can now provide an even better service to the people of Waterford. Since 2010 WMSR has saved 120 lives and with their new facilities they are hoping to further help the people of Waterford. Michael Murphy, 2017/2018 WITSU President said “This is a perfect example of how WIT’s Raise and Give efforts can have a positive impact on the local community and it is fantastic to see such activities taking place. We thank Waterford Marine Search and Rescue for their continuing efforts to make our city a safer place.”
