When you face your work with courage you have fundamental worth, you have presence in the moment of peril that others can depend upon.

It’s not easy is it though? You had to attribute a lot of your time and value to your professional development.

You can associate your professional and personal values to the structure of your rescue work.

A few of the attributes of character that are determined to be or become this person are:
1. Sacrifice
2. Technique
3. Study

Work in a manner that sets you apart from what others do around you. Lead by being that man or that woman. Don’t capitulate to being less. Strive, push, drive; do everything you can to stay the course of technical advantage.


Study means your sacrifice and technique are in a continual for progression. You never stop learning, you hunger to know what is the next best training method, equipment or Rescue Water Craft. You train yourself; you research and you stay safe and protect your reputation and those you work with.

Not everyone is ‘rescue good’. We know some of you are pulling the weight for others, wishing you could speak up but have to remain silent, wish you could encourage change but the doors are shut.

Keep being you, keep representing Character in professionalism. Being good is an extremely difficult position, but the only other option is catastrophe. You were not designed for chaos but to bring the good through the bad times.


Having the bearing of a commitment is the most difficult thing to do because it requires sacrifice.

You pay attention to the weather and you measure up the ‘Go-No Go’ so you can prevent a disaster.

You know when to do something and how it need to be done with effective techniques. You also recognize how quickly things fall apart if you step outside of the framework of good.

You understand that bad things are going to happen and that you are the one who responds to them with your team, and you all need to be working in concert for success. Your focus is to come home safe.

All of us can visually see the truth of the operational evidence that is suggested by safety actions in these unique people, and we know you are one of them!
