Coastguard

A big thank you to Mr Griggs who came to talk to the Kiwi Team today about the volunteer work he does for Coastguard for our Inquiry topic of people who help in the community.
The Coastguard boat he volunteers on as part of Auckland Coastguard is called 'ASB Rescue'.
Coastguard save and help people who are in trouble on the water eg anchor stuck, run out of petrol, hit rocks etc.
Coastguard also educate people on safe boating. Mr Griggs demonstrated how important it is to have a life jacket that fits correctly and to have your cell phone in a dry bag (even if it is a sealable plastic bag).
