Under the roof organisation called Estonian Rescue Association there are 120 organisations from land rescue, maritime rescue and special rescue services.
We work daily with the Ministry of Interior Affairs, the Estonian Rescue Board and the Estonian Police and Border Patrol Board in order to represent the voluntary rescuers in Estonia.
At the General Assembly held in Narva on 4-5 November 2016, the Rescue League adopted a new vision "Secure Estonia 2025", which envisaged:
A ground rescue unit is usually a volunteer fire company with at least one main vehicle, a crew operating it, and associated equipment.
The heart of the maritime rescue unit is the rescue boat, the crew using it, and the relevant communication and special equipment.
Several associations related to specific rescue operations have emerged in Estonia over the past few decades. For example, there are associations whose efforts have been spent on raising and training water rescue dogs.
The day-to-day activities of the Estonian Rescue Association are organized by the chairman of the board. The head of communications provides assistance to the chairman of the board.
The strategy is set by the Council. The Council of the Estonian Rescue Association is elected on the principle that volunteers from each region of Estonia are represented by one member of the Council and two members represent members with a pan-Estonian area of activity.
One member maintains the continuity of the Estonian Fire Protection Association, which has joined the Estonian Rescue Association.
Estonian Rescue Association unites non-profit rescue organisations that provide their services to the Government. Land rescue organisations provide services to the Estonian Rescue Board and maritime rescue organisations provide their services to the Estonian Police and Border Patrol Board. Special rescue organisations vary from their responsibilities and they provide their services to both of the government Interior Affairs organisations.
Estonian Rescue Association is an emphatically open organization. We want to be the best example of Estonian civil society. We always have a say in the creation of laws, ordinances and regulations regarding voluntary rescue and marine rescue.
We deal with the organization of joint procurements, trainings and safety days. Regarding our activities, the financial situation of volunteer land and sea rescue teams and with the support of local local rescue centers and state authorities has improved.
In 2016 at the general meeting held in Narva, Päästeliit adopted a new vision "Safe Estonia 2025". In terms of the goal, the vision coincides with the Rescue Board's vision to ensure a safety level equivalent to Scandinavia by 2025 in Estonia, taking into account those who died and got injured in accidents. As a rescue association, we believe that in order to reach this goal, the volunteer land and sea rescue commandos must be much more capable.
We are taking concrete steps to realize the vision. We are trying to involve business sponsors more than before and we expect everyone to contribute in a smaller amount. Let's make life safe in Estonia!
