Serving the Community


Banna Rescue is an voluntary inshore and land rescue unit covering one of the busiest and best beach (Tripadvisor, 2017) in the country. Part of Community Rescue Boats Ireland (C.R.B.I), Banna Rescue was founded in 1983 following two tragic drownings. Our volunteers undergo training under the auspices of the Irish Coastguard and Irish Water Safety. Banna Rescue volunteers respond to emergencies on a 24/7/365 basis. There are approximately 30 members in the unit comprising of both crew and management committee. Our D-class boat patrols from Brandon head to Kerry head including Tralee Bay. However we are also tasked to callouts on land.
