NSRI EMERGENCY
OPERATION CENTRE (EOC)

There was much excitement at the office over the last two weeks. We had so many elves helping us fold boxes and pack up gifts. This year, we gave each volunteer the book released Into a Raging Sea to commemorate 50 years of Sea Rescue (1967-2017) kindly published pro bono by Jonathan Ball Publishers. Without our volunteers and donors this organisation does not exist so it was a small token of appreciation for their selfless service.We received a very cool sponsorship from Second Skins as a gift. Rash vests for all our crew for the summer season to protect them from the harsh elements of the sun while they are out rescuing. The skins have a very high UV protection and endorsed by the Skin Cancer Foundation. Below are some highlights of the festivities :)20161130_091153Collen (Office assistant) helping us sort through all the boxes for shipment.
