I am swimming all 8 miles at Midmar to raise funds for the NSRI. The NSRI keeps South Africans safe all over the country as well as educating children about water safety, saving countless lives in the process.
Sea Rescue is a charity staffed by volunteers who are on call, day and night throughout the year. We have rescue bases along the coast and on inland dams. Our rescue crew are not paid and we do not charge the people who we rescue. Our goal is to prevent drowning through education, through preventative measures and through rescue. Year after year we update and improve on our skills and techniques and we continuously investigate new technologies.
We visit schools around the country teaching children about water safety, what to do in an emergency and how to do basic hands-on CPR. We have build an online training centre and for our crew and extended this platform to include free courses for the public as well. other preventative measures include emergency signage, Pink Rescue Buoys for flotation, Lifeguards and active patrols during peak season.
