Welcome to the home of the Hamilton Beach Rescue Unit
The Hamilton Beach Rescue Unit is a 100% Volunteer Non Profit Organization. We are on call year round ready to provide our services for the City of Hamilton and surrounding area. Our primary method of tasking is from the Hamilton Police. Our secondary method of tasking is from the Canadian Coast Guard Auxiliary. While we are ready for any distress situations throughout the year, we put our boatlift in the water in April and take it out in October.
Our group of volunteers meets every Monday from 19:00 to 21:00 hours, starting from January 1st throughout the year at our training hall for meetings, training and practices. Monday nights from April untill October are for "on the water" training in all aspects of boating, cleaning and organizing our equipment, making sure that all the equipment is on board, in good working condition and ready for any emergency.
