A warm welcome to all Rotarians visiting this page.

IRC did their first talk to Rotary in 1984 and have given talks and received donations every year since – which makes them our longest term supporter.

IRC are a specialist Urban Search and Rescue team responding to natural and man-made disasters all over the world. The ethos ‘United To Save Life’ applies to every action of our volunteer specialists.
