WELCOME TO BEAUFORT! PLEASE BOAT SAFELY!

Beaufort Water Search And Rescue (BWSAR), also known as  Marine Rescue Squadron (MRS) 4B, is an all-volunteer organization dedicated to assisting boaters in distress. Our primary mission is to assist and support federal, state, and local emergency response agencies such as Coast Guard and South Carolina Dept. of Natural Resources.

All Beaufort Water Search And Rescue members are volunteers whose primary purpose is to serve citizens of Beaufort County and to assist persons in distress in water related incidents and emergencies. The organization operates primarily through the generous donations of local citizens.

BWSAR is a member of the MARINE RESCUE SQUADRONS of AMERICA
Marine Rescue Squadrons operate as all-weather, all-volunteer organizations. We are always on call!
