SARA’s Tewkesbury station formed in June 2008 and is currently located at the Gloucestershire Water Rescue Centre, alongside Gloucestershire Fire and Rescue Service. The crew moved during September 2011 when Tewkesbury Community Fire Station became the new Gloucestershire Water Rescue Centre, following a two-year stay at Basepoint Business Centre. The new centre is a joint agency project to provide a greater level of local resilience for all water related incidents. The combined resources of SARA and GFRS ensure the area is better prepared for future water rescue and large scale flooding responses.

The station houses four SARA inshore rescue boats, SARA 11, SARA 15, SARA 16 and SARA 17, alongside three Land Search / Boat Haulage vehicles MRU 3, MRU 11 and MRU12, in addition to GFRS assets. SARA Tewkesbury has Rescue Boat, Land Search and Swiftwater Search and Rescue Teams on standby 24/7 365.
