With determined volunteers and strong backing from our parent organisations, we are sure that this initiative will pave the way for others to do the same,' said Station Commander and Regional Representative, Rhine Barnes. 'We thank the community for their overwhelming support thus far and welcome anyone who would like to join.'To find out more email info@searescue.org.za The first members have started working on their fitness training under the leadership of veteran Lifeguard and NSRI Rescue Coxswain, Peter O'Hanlon.
