SNSM (National Association for Redemption at Sea) is a non-profit organization funded by almost 80% of private resources, mainly as a result of the generosity of private donors and sponsors. Its main functions are to prevent sea level rise, coastal surveillance and public awareness of the dangers associated with the sea.
In total, more than 9,000 volunteers are mobilized 24 hours a day, 365 days a year from 214 rescue centers, 32 training and intervention centers and 256 first aid stations along the coast. In summer, spreads throughout France and abroad.
By 2020, nearly 30,000 people had been treated and rescued by those rescued at sea, of which 1,200 children were lost and found near the shores.
In recognition of the general interest in SNSM activities, in 2017, the Prime Minister presented the Best National Reason Stamp for Rescue at Sea. Known as “M”.
This year, Mille SNSM is celebrating its fifth edition and innovating with an unprecedented game challenge. This challenge is accessible to all: young and old, established athletes and amateurs, ocean world speakers and neophytes. Ambition?
