|At the moment,
the staff of the Sea Rescue Station of Arriluze is formed by 60 volunteers,
taking in account both crew members and radio operating personnel, all
off them with different backgrounds in their normal life's.
we can find fishermen, merchant sailors, engineers, doctors, graphic designers,
cookers, lumberjacks, salers, waiters, students...
of them begin with with very little nautical knowledge, but all of them
get properly formed and trained in order to confront all the risky situations
in which they could get involved... And most important: All of them perform
they duties with big will.
On a lifeboat,
there are different positions between the crew, and each volunteer will
perform the task for which most and better skills has achieved. In any

volunteers watch for the safety of all the crew members previously mentioned,
