NSRI RSA SAFETRX SAFETY ALERT

With the Xmas school holidays fast approaching, the NSRI (https://www.nsri.org.za/) wants to build awareness, especially amongst boaters, Paddle/Surf Skiers, Surfers and even Divers of the need for safety at sea. Key to this is the need for such people to download the SafeTrx App onto their mobile devices. This App allows people doing both recreational and income generating sea-based activities to keep in touch and easily alert the NSRI if they experience difficulties while out to sea.

RSA SafeTrx – This is a tracking app, used internationally and customised for South Africa. SafeTrx is available to download from the Apple App Store and Google Play Store. Enter your vessel details, the people on board, your planned route and your ETA. And load your emergency contact details (i.e spouse / person at home). Then, if you are late or if you press the panic button, NSRI is alerted and we are sent your position. False alarms do happen so, while we are preparing to launch, a controller will call you or your emergency contact to verify if it was a mistake. No one minds the mistakes – they are a good opportunity to test the system. Download it now and try it out. It takes the “search” out of search and rescue. And the best part – it’s for free!”
