Lest We Forget

The organisations of the International Lifesaving Federation are not about glory and prizes. They are made up of individuals that are dedicated to the saving of lives and who are willing to put their own lives at risk to do so. All our organisations rely on public support and the selfl ess dedication of people that want to make a difference.

The humanitarian mission of ILS is "to save lives, and through the encouragement and conduct of sporting activities, equip the world membership with the ability to carry out this mission". Hosting Rescue 2010 will bring this world focus to Great Britain and will raise public profi le that will help bring better sponsorship and support. This will be reinvested for better training coupled with better technology.

Hosting Rescue 2010 really matters – here the sea, safety and service matter more than gold medals and we want the opportunity to prove that.
