National rescue fleet (NRV)

Reddingsbrigade Amstelveen manages a unit from the National Rescue Fleet (NRV).
This consists of a vessel and trained crew, who are ready in case of (expected) major water calamities to provide assistance in their own safety in the Amsterdam Amstelland and Zaanstreek Waterland region and far beyond in the Netherlands.

Rescue Brigade Netherlands has a formal task with regard to evacuation and assistance in flood disasters, for which it has entered into an agreement with the Ministry of Justice and Security and the National Disaster Fund. For this purpose, Rescue Brigade Netherlands has stationed 75 continuous standby and 15 reserve rescue units throughout the country, specially designed for sailing in flooded areas and for evacuation purposes.
The crew of these boats (1700 volunteers from the 166 Rescue Brigades) are ready 365 days a year for possible deployment within 1 hour. Every year, two emergency drills are organized for some rescue units.
