Supporting Coastguard NZ

coastguard nz charity

As the year draws to a close and Summer holidays are nearly upon us, it was rather fitting that Joe was drawn to Coastguard NZ as his charity of choice. Joe Wycherley, who is our Operations Manager, loves the outdoors and believes all of New Zealand’s people should feel safe on the water. Coastguard NZ is ‘the charity saving lives at sea’, and Smart Pack are proud to support Coastguard NZ and the incredible work they do.

Coastguard NZ’s rescue crews are made up of approx. 1,988 volunteers, who are organised, trained and equipped 24/7. They are the primary maritime search and rescue service in New Zealand. These professional volunteers dedicate a huge amount of their free time to helping keep their fellow Kiwis alive on the water. We are so grateful to have people willing to give up their time to help others, and feel that by donating to this cause, we can do our bit to show our support.

Coastguard NZ has 63 units across the country, made up of two communications units, two air patrol units, and 59 ‘wet’ units who crew rescue vessels.

We wanted to do our bit by getting involved in this awesome initiative, which helps keep Kiwis safe on the water, by providing education (like boating courses) and lifesaving rescue services.

Happy Holidays New Zealand!
