Sea Rescue local emergency numbers are posted on the NSRI home page www.nsri.org.za
All precautions and protocols as directed by the Department of Health are being adhered to during rescue operations and this includes operations involving patient evacuations off ships.
NSRI, as a Non Profit Organisation, relies on public funding to continue saving lives. Our telemarketing team are now working virtually from home in our effort to keep raising the much needed funds to remain operational.
We appeal to everyone to visit our website https://www.nsri.org.za/funding/donate/ and to make a donation – however small — to help keep us afloat. We need to ensure that we can continue to respond to emergencies at sea and on inland waters and in our support to land based emergency services during the Covid19 Pandemic.
NSRI are appealing to the public to remain safe during this time. Water related emergencies at home may include something as simple as a child falling into a bucket of water and drowning. Precautions should be applied to maintain home safety. A home swimming pool should have child proof barriers to prevent children’s unsupervised access to the pool. Supervision for children around water should be strictly adhered to.
NSRI appeal to everyone to adopt a safety conscience mindset during the lockdown.
