East Hampton, NY, USA

Join forces with Green Logic Energy, Truth Training, Blue Square Consulting, Amaden Gay, Southampton Optiks to provide essential equipment for the Ocean Rescue volunteers

East Hampton Volunteer Ocean Rescue (EHVOR) is a 100% volunteer affiliate of Hampton Lifeguard Association. Community is at their very core. Among their many services, volunteers with Ocean Rescue protect, safeguard, and coordinate water-based local charity events involving thousands of swimmers, and promote water safety and education throughout the community.

How this project makes a difference

On call 24/7, the 77-strong Ocean Rescue team work tirelessly alongside other emergency services to ensure water rescues are made as quickly and safely as possible. However, budget restraints do not allow for funding of much of the volunteer’s own safety equipment – from wetsuits and boards to masks and snorkels. Members rely on donations to fund their vital lifesaving equipment. That’s where we need your help.

Green Logic Energy has taken the lead, and is joined by Truth Training, Blue Square Consulting, AmadenGay, and Southampton Optiks to support EHVOR by matching every donation until the project is funded. That means your donation has double the impact!

Our Goal

The total cost of this project is $18,880 and will cover enhanced rescue equipment costs including:

  • Rescue boards
  • Masks and snorkel sets
  • Dry suits
  • Educational materials
  • Insurance expenses

In addition, a small portion of monies raised will go to a fund for the new water filtration system for the YMCA East Hampton RECenter pool where volunteers train.

Good people. Good business.

It is for a love of the waters and our way of life on the East End that lead Green Logic to support this project for Ocean Rescue. “I’ve known the team at Ocean Rescue for years. They keep our waters safe – the ocean, the bays, they are everywhere. If you ever see anyone in trouble… its Ocean Rescue that comes to their aid. Now we can help them. Join us.” – Marc Clejan

For Truth Training owner Ed Cashin and his team, community is at the core of what they do and who they are. They give back, engage and genuinely care about its well-being. Look for them at a charity paddle, run, bike ride – wherever fitness and good come together. Thank you for supporting this Ocean Rescue project.

Thank you to Blue Square Consulting, Loebs + Gordon Poolcraft, and Loebs + Gordon Poolcare, preeminent water space companies located in East Hampton, NY, for stepping up in support of Ocean Rescue.

Let’s give a hand to TJ Calabrese and Southampton Optiks for its commitment to Ocean Rescue.  You are community at its best.

Thank you!

  • East Hampton Volunteer Ocean Rescue

    Since 2003, East Hampton Volunteer Ocean Rescue (EHVOR) has been responding to all water emergencies in the ocean and in the bays, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Our organization is 77 strong with 66 certified rescue swimmers. This is the only volunteer organization of its kind in the country.

    Our mission is to make expedient and safe water rescues year-round at all unprotected beaches in East Hampton by responding quickly while coordinating with all East Hampton Emergency Services. This coordination is accomplished through training with multi agencies in many different scenarios and locations throughout the year. This allows us to be prepared for any water emergency from Wainscott to Montauk. EHVOR protects and coordinates many charitable events such as Swim Across America that benefits cancer research and Fighting Chance, Surfers Healing for Autism, and Paddle for Pink benefiting Breast Cancer Research. Our volunteer organization safeguards thousands of swimmers each year in all Permitted Open Water Swims and Triathlons in the township of East Hampton.

    Our members promote water safety and education by assisting Hampton Lifeguard Association’s (HLA’s) mission in waterproofing the East End. Along with the East Hampton Town lifeguards, EHVOR assists in training and testing children from ages 9 – 14 from Main Beach to Montauk. The successes of this year’s program led to a winning National Team at Daytona Beach, Florida, and to two HLA members being medalled in the World Competition in Australia. Members of EHVOR are committed to supporting our community through all of our efforts, as we will always be Lifeguards For Life!
