How does the organisation of sea rescue in France work?
In France, the organisation of rescue services at sea is handled by the Centres Opérationnels de Surveillance et de Sauvetage (CROSS), which act under the responsibility of the Maritime Prefects and coordinate all rescue actions off our coasts. They rely on the intervention capabilities of the Société Nationale de Sauvetage en Mer (SNSM), or rely on other players present at sea or who can be mobilized to rescue people in difficulty at sea as quickly as possible (fisheries, merchant navy, French Navy, Civil Security, yachting, etc.). In addition, the mayors of the coastal municipalities are responsible for the surveillance of beaches and bathing areas, up to a limit of 300 metres from the shore. The municipalities call upon the rescue swimmers of the SNSM or the French Federation of Rescue and First Aid (FFSS), the Fire Brigade of the Departmental Fire and Rescue Services (SDIS) or the CRS.
The SNSM's Sauveteurs en Mer carry out 50% of the rescues coordinated by the CROSSes and monitor 35% of the coastal beaches from the first aid posts on the beaches, under the responsibility of the mayors of the communes.
