Rescuers in action
Experience the work of the sea rescuers up close - the Society for the Rescue of Shipwrecked People (DGzRS) invites you to this on Sunday. From 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. everyone has the opportunity to find out about tasks, missions and, of course, the SAR ships.
For the first time, the DGzRS will also open the headquarters site to the public. It is located at Werderstrasse 2 in Bremen-Neustadt. In the SAR school, under the guidance of DGzRS training captains, a mission is offered on the simulator, during which the visitor is the skipper himself.
Heads of the maritime emergency management also provide information about the work in the Maritime Rescue Co-ordination Center (MRCC). And in “Bremen's smallest cinema”, exciting films about the work of the rescuers on the North and Baltic Seas are shown non-stop.
Maritime rarities are sold in a bazaar and great prizes can be won at a raffle - for example a ride on a rescue cruiser in late summer. The museum rescue cruiser "H. J. Kratschke" can also be visited. The former daughter boat "Eiswette" from 1829 is presented together with a photo exhibition on this rescue unit. And the model construction friends of the "Arbeitsgemeinschaft 1:10" present their large models of rescue cruisers and lifeboats
More and more interested people, especially from inland areas, are taking advantage of the opportunity to receive first-hand information from the DGzRS crews at the stations. With a bit of luck, you can even take part in a “little harbor tour” on the lifeboat at some stations.
“Open ship” is of course also used on numerous rescue cruisers. The operational readiness is guaranteed. The program on land offers enough variety.
The current program of events is published on the Internet at www.seenotretter.de.
