PLETTENBERG BAY NEWS - Plettenberg Bay’s National Sea Rescue Institute (NSRI) station received a massive boost this week when they took delivery of a new and more efficient rescue vessel.
On Wednesday April 19, 2017 official received the Free Runner – a jet-ski to be used in responding to beach emergencies in the Plett area.
The vessel replaces the well-used Discovery Rescue Runner which has been part of the station’s operations for the past eight years.
Station commander Marc Rodgers said that the jet-ski would be a major plus for the station as the vessel had a “superb reputation of highly efficient response times”.
“This new vessel will reduce our response times to ever increasing surf-related rescues, and with various rescue specific modifications made to an already extremely competent vessel it will increase crew safety and the chances of those in peril. This is an extremely valuable addition to our fleet,” Rodgers said.
