The Norwegian Society for Sea Rescue (NSSR). Saving lives at sea.

The first rescue boat went into service in 1893, and in 1894 the Colin Archer saved 37 lives in a storm off the coast of Finnmark.

Today, there are 43 vessels continuously manned and on standby along the coast of Norway. The society has about 6000 engagements every year.

13 of the 43 boats are operated by volunteers, two of these volunteer boats are based on Norway's two biggest lakes: Mjøsa and Femunden. The rest of the boats are manned by a professional crew who live and work onboard on a 28 day rotation.
