The Norwegian Sea Rescue Society has recently taken a mobile vessel tracking solution on board, and will use SafeTrx to help promote safe, responsible recreational boating in the country’s coastal waters and inland navigable waters.
The voluntary organisation has approximately 1,200 volunteers based in 25 rescue stations across Norway.
“The Norwegian Sea Rescue Society has entered into a co-operation with several other sea rescue organisations around the world in implementing the SafeTrx safety app for boaters,” noted the society’s spokesperson Martin Fuhr Bolstad.
“The excellent technology and the tight co-operation with other sea rescue organisations is key for us moving forwards with SafeTrx,” he added.
The SafeTrx team will now work closely with the Norwegian Sea Rescue Society in the coming months to establish the standard operating procedures and customise SafeTrx in accordance with the organisation’s existing protocols.
