On Wednesday evening the KNRM gave a demonstration at her station. The lifeboat volunteers opened the doors for everybody to see what it means to be part of a lifeboat crew. Evening filled with flares, splashing water and lots of fun!
The Royal Netherlands Sea Rescue Institution (Dutch: Koninklijke Nederlandse Redding Maatschappij, abbreviated: KNRM) is the voluntary organization in the Netherlands tasked with saving lives at sea. For that purpose, it maintains 45 lifeboat stations along the Dutch coast of the North Sea and Wadden Sea and on the IJsselmeer. It maintains 78 boats ranging from small boat to 21 meter long RHIBs. It also provides lifeguard services at some beaches on the Frisian Islands in the waddensea, and the beach of Wassenaar. Its headquarters have been in IJmuiden since 1996.
Respect for those who risk there lives at sea to rescue the ones in need!
