French marine rescue association SNSM and Ocqueteau signed the 19th of march 2014 a cooperation agreement.
The reasons for the partnership SNSM OCQUETEAU
Being based on an island swept by winter storms and burned by the summer sun explains our two main values: fun and safety. Behind our slogan, a little provocative, "we have not invented the sea ..." we must especially see this attachment to life, the true one, the one we love and that we would not want to spoil.
Of course we do not have the monopoly of this attachment. The french marine rescue association, the SNSM - Société Nationale de Sauvetage en Mer - has even made it its vocation: to prevent and to save.
This community of value naturally led us to propose a partnership to the SNSM. Other points of convergence brought us closer like the marine qualities, recognized for our boats, sought by the SNSM who does not like risks.
The content of the partnership
In short, all these reasons led to a first step in the Ocqueteau SNSM partnership with the donation of a 605 helmsman to the SNSM for its training and intervention center of the Somme, the SNS 452 for the intimate ones. It is used in particular for the training of voluntary rescue swimmers. This donation was followed by the supply of boats to the SNSM at cost price with no margin, again for training rescue swimmers but also for security missions.
Finally, thanks to its experience of the sea and safety, the SNSM ensures us an unparalleled experience for the benefit of all the boats of the Ocqueteau range and therefore of all of you! Imagine a simple call to the SNSM on a boat safety concern and we have tens of years of experience to design us in the design and use of boats. Thanks to this experience, the SNSM is able to constantly improve our boats to make them safer every time, so that they can more easily forgive the many small errors that we can all commit in their use.
And if you want to help the SNSM too, you have two extremely simple ways: Wear your lifejacket as often as possible ... and when this is really not possible, for example, in the office, make a donation!
