Sea Rescue has a vision to establish rescue bases around the coast and on inland dams. When setting up new rescue bases we take a long-term view and, to ensure that our efforts are sustainable, we first gather a group of willing and able volunteers and train them.Welcome to Johan, Quentin and Schalk who will lead as Station Commanders at their rescue bases. St Lucia and Kleinmond are brand new bases and are not yet operational. The volunteers have begun training to ensure that they are ready and equipped for season. In Ballito, the Specialised Rescue Unit has been successfully operating for many years. They have an established rescue crew and are respected in the field. They have chosen to join NSRI and will operate as NSRI Station 41; we look forward to working together with them.
