The NSRI is opening all 50 of its bases to the public for an exciting open day this October; the public can meet the heroes who volunteer their time to save lives.


South Africa (20 September 2022) – The NSRI is made up of incredible volunteers who give selflessly of their time, the public is being invited to meet these men and women, and learn all about the work being done by the NSRI throughout South Africa.

Did you know that every province except Limpopo has an NSRI base? The inland bases focus on water safety near large bodies of water, such as North West’s Hartbeespoort Dam, Witbank Dam and the Free State/ Gauteng’s Vaal Dam.

The NSRI Open Day takes place on Saturday 1 October and gives members of the public a chance to visit any one of the 50 bases nationwide to get a better look at what the NSRI does every day.

Date: Saturday, 1 October 2022
Time: 10h00-15h00
Location: Find your nearest NSRI base here.

This is an opportunity to learn more about the organization which is manned by more than 1300 unpaid volunteers who are on call 24/7, ready to respond to water-related emergencies.

“Some would say that our volunteers are heroes, but to us, the real heroes are all of you, the donors who support us every day. So, please, come down with the family to your local rescue base – our volunteers would love the chance to meet their heroes in person,” says NSRI CEO Dr Cleeve Robertson.
