  • The minimum age to begin training is 18 years of age.
  • Membership can begin at the age of 16 but in line with the UK emergency services you cannot go operational until 18.
  • Our training is broken down into a series of modules and trainees receive signatures in their ‘Training Passport’ which allows them to deploy on the type of missions for which they have trained, once they have passed that relevant training.
  • There is no requirement to complete the training for all types of disaster, though deployment overseas for an earthquake would require comprehensive training in most modules.
  • Most trainees will probably choose to tailor their training to a particular type of UK mission, rather than completing all.

A Reminder

IRC have NO paid staff.
We are ALL volunteers.
ALL donations go to helping IRC operations

We are a UK based charity and due to the voluntary nature of the Corps, combined with the need for extensive training, this means that operational membership of the IRC is restricted to residents of the UK.

Gift Aid

The Gift Aid form has now been added to new membership forms and to renewal forms along with some answers to frequently asked questions.
If you agree and want to help International Rescue Corps raise some money, fill the form in and return it to our admin office happy in the knowledge that you have just raised £6.50 for the Corps for the price of a second class stamp.
Anyone who has already filled out a form, please take a moment to consider if you have changed your address or name since you last filled a form in. If so please send a new form so that the details can be updated.
