Saving lives, Changing lives, Creating futures.
Our rescue crew are all unpaid volunteers. We accept all people; young and old, black and white, skilled boaters or those who just want to learn. All that you need to bring is yourself, your time and your desire to make a difference. And don’t worry about the experience that you may or may not have – we will teach you everything that you need to know to become part a Sea Rescue volunteer.
We will challenge you physically and mentally and you will grow faster than you thought possible. If you are interested, and you think that you have what it takes to be a Sea Rescue volunteer pop down to your closest station https://www.nsri.org.za/rescue/rescue-bases/ and ask about their training programme.
Volunteering is a commitment but there are wonderful rewards in being part of an exciting and dynamic team that saves lives at sea and creates futures for the people of South Africa on land.
Sea Rescue will become your second family where you will learn many new skill sets that will help you grow as a person while contributing to your community.
If you would like to be a part of a dynamic team of volunteers who give their time selflessly to help others in rescue work, lifeguarding, coast watching, teaching survival swimming, teaching water safety, assisting with the Pink Rescue Buoy campaign or assisting with fundraising please call us on 0214344011 or email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will link you with the person who can help you to become a Sea Rescue volunteer.
Sea Rescue is looking for volunteers who do not want to go out on rescue boats:
Pop-up Survival Swimming :
We have almost completed the pilot projects on our Sea Rescue Pop-up Survival Swimming course’s and are looking for volunteers to run Pop-up Survival Swimming courses around the country. This is an opportunity for those who would like to volunteer for Sea Rescue in their communities but who want to do so at specific times and do not want to go out in rescue boats.
If you think that you would like to join a Survival Swimming Squad and volunteer to teach children how to control their breathing, orientate themselves in water, float and propel themselves to safety in a controlled lesson and environment please email email@example.com
We will provide the training, manuals, required equipment, command and control structures and advise on when and where to teach!
Pink Rescue Buoys:
If you would like to be involved with Sea Rescue but don’t want to go to sea … and only have a few hours a week to spare … how about volunteering to manage the Pink Rescue Buoys in your area? If this is something that you think you can help with please email firstname.lastname@example.org
So far these emergency flotation devices have saved 57 lives, we need you to join us and take pressure off sea going volunteers by managing the Pink Buoys in your area.
