The virtual day, the Maritime search and rescue

Because of the Corona of a pandemic this year, even in the distress, all rescuers in a different way: Girlfriends, friends, and supporters are not able to visit the rescue units, this time in front of the place. Talks between the Crews and visitors will only be able to online to take place: as a virtual day, the Maritime search and rescue on Sunday of this week.

For more than 20 years, the day of the sea rescuer, always on the last Sunday in July. At the 55 stations in the North sea and the Baltic man (and woman) can meet the people go out, if it is serious, personally. Normally. Because this year everything is different.

On Sunday, the 26. In July, the stations and the volunteer rescuers completely relaxed from your Sofa to get to know. Because this year, the DGzRS-Motto has a double sense of the word: here We come! and although virtually all friends and patrons home.

The rescue crews have come up with something Special: The crews have produced with their own Board to work with the Videos – as if the visitors would be on Board. In the Bremen Headquarters, the Material was cut to exciting movies. So the rescuers to come directly to your home to your supporters. And everyone can be online everywhere, where the DGzRS Crews are stationed – there, where you go even probably never.

The insights go far beyond what is otherwise seen in a day of search and rescue personnel on the Station. How come the voluntary Maritime rescuer is actually on the car-free island of Langeoog to your boat? How does it look on Board the sea rescue cruiser "Arkona"? And, like a joint rescue mission work?

part of the virtual event this year is a raffle with a special prize. The GMRS is giving away ten Rides on a lifeboat or rescue boat. And also the popular T-Shirt of the Maritime search and rescue to the day of the search and rescuers are there again this year, of course.

go Out when others come in,

180 permanent employees work on 20 stations with search and rescue cruisers. About 800 Volunteers who support in smaller units as a voluntary crew to come. These stations are not staffed around the clock, but the rescuers are 24/7 ready for use, as in the case of the volunteer fire Department. A very time-consuming voluntary work, where you are constantly learning. Who wants to be a sea rescuer, or Savior, can inform here.
