Exmouth RNLI volunteers assist students’ cardboard boat challenge
On 23 March, Crew and Community Safety volunteers from Exmouth lifeboat station supported Exeter University students in their cardboard boat challenge, on the river Exe.
It is with tremendous sadness that we announce the unexpected passing of long time team member, Mike Dal Santo. Mike was born on October 23, 1952 in Surrey, BC, and while working for Telus as a software developer, joined North Shore Rescue as a active field member in 2000. In his long service with our organization, in addition to heading out into the mountains to save lives, Mike sat on a number of important committees, maintained our organizations critical equipment (including keeping our numerous AED’s and defibrillators operational), and was a key member of our organizations trail marking program. It is hard to put into words the magnitude of Mike’s service.

The author has provided a fascinating history of fire, its impact on the planet and its life forms. Fire is a greatly under estimated phenomena. It has an enormous impact on the environment and the development of everything that lives in that environment. Its impact is at least an equal to water, ice, plate tectonics, weather patterns and atmosphere – Highly Recommended.
Recently NSR received a very generous donation of medical equipment from the family of the late Lise Marie Claudette Tompson-Cyr (February 25, 1959 – July 31, 2015). We were honoured to receive a number of Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) along with other medical equipment used in remote industrial settings. This equipment will be put to use in supporting NSR’s mission in training and where applicable, operationally.
