SSRS has one single mission – to save lives at sea, with the help of 69 lifeboat stations and more than 200 rescue boats along Sweden’s coasts and lakes. It also has 2100 volunteer lifeboatmen ready for action, all year round. Help is on its way within 15 minutes of the alarm being raised. Reliability is of vital importance in an organization whose objective is saving human life. Right now, the Swedish Sea Rescue Society is preparing for its high season.
– We need reliable boats in emergency situations, Marie Louise Dahlberg, from the Sea Rescue Society’s technical department, says and continues; We’re responsible for 200 boats – everything from jet skis to hovercraft and all-weather boats – and we do our best to be the best and avoid breakdowns, Marie Louise says.
Right now, the organization is getting ready for its high season; every boat must be in tip-top condition because they will be constantly in action. SSRS performs around 70 per cent of all rescue operations in response to emergency calls. Its operations depend on volunteers and donations. Aretics has donated MaintMaster as well as training courses on maintenance work to SSRS.
– We use the MaintMaster maintenance system and it will be the hub for the operational part of our organization, Marie Louise says.
– The idea is for the volunteers to inspect their boats and register whatever needs doing directly into the system, she continues
