3rd Singha-R-Sa

Marine and Diving

Rescue Training

It has been three years of Singha-R-Sa’s collaboration with the Naval Special Warfare Command, Royal Thai Fleet in arranging regular “Singha-R-Sa Marine and Diving Rescue” training sessions for nationwide rescue volunteers. In the 2020 session, volunteers from 11 provinces participated in the session at the office of the Naval Special Warfare Command, Royal Thai Fleet in Chonburi.

Get Ready

for the Training

Healthy participants with no pre-training preparation might suffer from muscle injury. Therefore, the first activity before our training is always a warm-up session, including running and stretching, to stimulate blood circulation and prevent muscle injury and cramp.

The first day of training was already intense! The participants were led to the pool for familiarization with the water survival and survival equipment with proper instructions consistently provided throughout the session.

One of Southeast Asia’s

Three Rescue Diving Training Halls

Training Halls

The highlight of the course was that Singha-R-Sa team and the volunteers had an opportunity to practice diving in one of Southeast Asia’s three rescue diving training halls, where actual SEAL personnel are trained. Singha-R-Sa’s rescue volunteers were the first group of external personnel trained in the hall.

To the Wide Sea

After days of indoor training, it was time to explore the sea. Singha-R-Sa and the rescue volunteers, along with the instructors, boarded the boat and sailed out to the sea, where equipment instructions were reviewed once again for everybody’s safety. Then the intense open-sea practice began.

Ready to Share

the Knowledge

Singha-R-Sa organized the course with the intention for nationwide rescue volunteers to develop capability and expertise in proper and safe water rescue according to international standards. There have been several occasions where the rescue volunteers themselves are caught in accidents and need special skills in order to skillfully carry out the missions and reduce potential damage. More importantly, after the course, qualified rescue volunteers can then share their knowledge with local fellows and recruit them as local rescue volunteers in Singha-R-Sa’s Recruitment Project so they can look after their own areas in the future.
