Mission Statement

The mission of Southampton Village Ocean Rescue (SVOR) is to respond to emergencies in the ocean and bay, throughout the Village of Southampton, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. We believe that one drowning is too many and are dedicated to safeguarding the beaches in and around Southampton. We recognize that preventative lifeguarding is a key component to saving lives. Members actively promote water safety and education and have training programs in place for high school students. In addition, members safeguard swimmers in charitable events that involve open water, as well as other water-related functions in Southampton. We believe that one drowning is too many!


SVOR is a volunteer first responder organization, dedicated to making expeditious and safe water rescues year-round at all unprotected beaches in and around Southampton Village. Every month SVOR trains in different locations, coordinating with numerous emergency agencies, to be prepared for any aquatic emergency. SVOR rescuers are ocean lifeguard- and CPR-certified.If you are interested and not certified, we will train you at no cost.

We also have positions for members that don't involve getting in the water:

  • Photographers
  • Writers / PR
  • Fundraisers
  • Event Coordinators & Assistants
  • Mechanics
  • Construction
