ETS NORD supports the Swedish Sea Rescue Society
ETS NORD is donating ventilation ducts and fittings to the Swedish Sea Rescue Society’s new floating station on Lake Hjälmaren.
A station offers many advantages. It is a place to hold training sessions, to meet and talk after demanding missions, a place where it is possible to change clothes, and last but not least a place to store and maintain equipment. Furthermore, it is a place to teach school children how to behave sensibly and safely at sea, and to present the various activities the Swedish Sea Rescue Society is involved in on Lake Hjälmaren.
With 2,300 volunteer sea rescuers at 73 rescue stations, the Swedish Sea Rescue Society covers the Swedish coast and the largest lakes. Since 1907, the Swedish Sea Rescue Society has functioned as a non-profit organization and participates in 80 percent of sea rescue in Sweden. The entire operation is based on voluntary efforts, memberships, and donations. Time is crucial in all sea rescue. Thanks to the volunteer sea rescuers who are ready to go out 24 hours a day all year round, the Sea Rescue Society can quickly be in place when an alarm goes off.
