Over the past week, and in response to the tragedy at the Wilderness Lagoon, local emergency services in the Wilderness area - including George Fire, Eden 911, Metro Rescue, Wilderness Life Guards, San Parks and the Blue Flag Ambassadors, NSRI Wilderness and our WaterWise Academy - got together to share ideas and train together. These men and women regularly work shoulder to shoulder on scene at emergencies, they know each other and respect each other. Yesterday, the focus was on combined practical training for NSRI and Lifeguards on rip current swims and rescue techniques, including working around and with rescue boats, and with children in such scenarios. In the process we built trust and shared systems and methods of communicating. During the training real life rescue unfolded and four Dutch tourists were saved.'We are in awe of the attitude and enthusiasm that the Blue Flag Beach Ambassadors bring. And we will continue to collaborate in any way feasible with all our colleagues in the rescue services.' said NSRI rescue swimmer Torsten Henschel.Pics: Liza Wigley21-dec-19121-dec-19821-dec-20021-dec-23321-dec-04921-dec-03021-dec-00921-dec-02421-dec-026
