The Tennessee River Rescue will be on a Saturday in October, and they need you to help to volunteer.

Join NewsChannel 9 and the McMahan Law Firm River Rescue Team!

We’ll be cleaning the Chickamauga Dam swimming area.

To sign up just email our team captain, Heather, at

There are many ways to get involved with the Tennessee River Rescue:

  • Go to one of the clean up zones on October 7, 2017 at 9 a.m and help clean up!
  • You do not need to pre-register to work a zone. However, if you have a large group you may want to call your zone captain and let them know the groups ages and sizes. T-shirts are handed our first-come, first-served and a minimum of 2 hours work is required. Also, be sure to wear appropriate clothes and shoes. It can be muddy - but very rewarding - work.
  • Get a group of people to help run a new zone. This is great for a scout troop or church group!
  • Donate $100 to sponsor the cost of one dumpster.
  • Companies can donate $300 to have their name on the Tennessee River Rescue T-shirt.
