The National Sea Rescue Institute (NSRI) is run by 980 highly skilled, unpaid volunteers who are on
standby day and night throughout the year. Donations and sponsorships cover our annual running cost of R25m.
The volunteers save us a salary bill in excess of R250m per annum.

There are 32 coastal and three inland rescue bases, a fleet of 92 rescue craft, 27 vehicles and we have
access to a range of helicopters. We enjoy a good working relationship with other emergency services
and we believe that it is through team effort that lives are saved.

The NSRI education arm, called WaterWise Academy, teaches children what to do in an emergency
and gives them the confidence to initiate basic bystander CPR while they wait for the ambulance to arrive.
The WaterWise Academy targets disadvantaged youth between the ages of nine and 14,
because statistically they are the most at risk (South African Medical Research Council, 2006).

Our technical experts, our auditors and our board of Directors are also all unpaid volunteers.
