Be a lifesaver

Fancy two free weeks of sun, sand and sea with nice people?
Then join us on the coast as a lifeguard with the Coastal Central Water Rescue Service.

The German Lifesaving Society e.V. (DLRG) occupies from may to october around 80 water rescue stations on the German North Sea and Baltic Sea coasts with lifeguards who perform their service on a voluntary basis. In this way, the DLRG makes a significant contribution to the safety of vacationers and ensures the safest beaches worldwide.

Prerequisite for application

  1. Commitment to at least 14 consecutive days of service (less in the off-season by arrangement).
  2. Minimum age: 16 years (for some water rescue stations: 18 years).
  3. Proof of operational capability according to 410.2 of the DLRG examination regulations for water rescue service

Participation in the Central Water Rescue Service is not possible without this proof of operational capability. Alternatively, the operational capability can be proven by presenting the DRSA Silver (not older than two years). The respective examination must have taken place before arrival at the coast.
