The NSRI has an important relationship with Government through its national, provincial, district and local institutions and with State-Owned Entities.
As the only nationwide sea and fresh-water rescue service we provide an essential service to South African citizens and foreign nationals on South African waters.
We fulfil our mandate through formal service agreements across the country providing rescue, education and lifeguarding services. Our active partnerships show great impact, yet much opportunity remains to extend our relationships and services with Government and SOE’s to fulfil our vision of making South Africa a water safe nation.
We are proud of our relationships.
The United Nations has resolved to make Drowning Prevention a critical aspect of the World Health Organisation programme. Working with Government and SOE’s the NSRI is committed to upholding this resolution in our country.
Take a look at the United Nations Resolution below.
The role of the NSRI cannot be understated. Not only do we help to keep citizens safe around water but we provide a safety net for the economy across a wide range of industries, from tourism to shipping, recreational sport, fishing and events.
