The National Sea Rescue Institute is manned by over 1 000 volunteers at 31 bases around the coast and on 4 inland dams.
The NSRI’s mission is to save lives on South African waters.
In order to achieve our mission we need unpaid volunteers that can be trained as shore and sea crew to man our rescue vessels.
In order for a volunteer to qualify as sea crew to be able to go on a rescue vessel during a rescue operation a new volunteer must first complete a training program.

The program involves 30 hours as a trainee crew member on a rescue vessel normally achieved over the first year of joining.
Theoretical and practical instruction together with Level 3 First Aid Training is done on base and must be completed and competence proofed for the trainee crew member to qualify.
Caila Christie and Martin Fourie completed the training program recently and both qualified as Sea Crew.

People interested in becoming a volunteer at NSRI Witsand are welcome to contact us directly on 0829905957.
Sea Rescue is the charity that saves lives on South African waters.
