SVOR MISSION

MISSION

Founded in 2018, the mission of Southampton Village Ocean Rescue (SVOR) is to respond to emergencies in the ocean and bay, in and around the Village of Southampton • 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, via 911. 

SVOR is a volunteer organization, dedicated to making expeditious and safe open water rescues at unprotected beaches. Each month SVOR members train in various locations coordinating with multiple emergency agencies: Police Department, Fire Department, Ambulance, Marine Patrol and US Coast Guard; to be prepared for a multitude of emergencies requiring lifesaving assistance. Our rescuers are ocean lifeguard and CPR certified.

SVOR recognizes that preventative lifeguarding is a key component to saving lives. Members actively promote water safety and education. SVOR initiated the Lifeguard Training program for individuals, ages 16 and older. as well as the Junior Lifeguard Training and Cadet programs for those 16 and under. SVOR provides year-round lifeguard training and offers pre-season water safety programs and swim stamina classes.  SVOR also organizes community Adult Swim Clinics, overseen by SVOR volunteers, which run alongside all ocean rescue lifeguard programs. Educational information about rip currents is distributed during Beach Safety Week and various summer events. Notably, SVOR is responsible for  rip current signs at all Southampton Village ocean beach access points. SVOR is continuously working toward the ultimate goal to prevent drownings and waterproof Southampton.

In addition, members safeguard swimmers in open water charitable events, as well as support other water-related functions in Southampton.

The current seventy members of this growing organization are committed to protecting lives. Unfortunately, there have been too many drownings in the past.

One drowning in a community is too many!

ALWAYS ON CALL!
