LRSE acquired North East Safety Training Company (NESTCo) and will be offering hands-on safety training for all mariners.

The Survival Triad is composed of three equal parts: Equipment, Training, and Attitude. We believe that safety training is just as important as the safety gear you have onboard your vessel. As LRSE has been offering the most trusted safety equipment and services to mariners for 35 years, we are happy to provide this opportunity to educate mariners in the optimal ways to utilize this equipment properly and to their advantage.

It is our goal in offering this hands-on training to establish these safety procedures as muscle memory over time. In the event of an emergency onboard a vessel a crew that drills regularly is more likely to be successful, minimize the risk of injuries, and most importantly survive. The right training can ensure the correct course of action is implemented in an emergency situation thus fortifying the crew’s attitude and completing the Survival Triad.

Compared to 2015, the number of accidents increased 7.3%, the number of deaths increased 12%, and the number of injuries increased 11.1%.

Where cause of death was known, 80% of fatal boating accident victims drowned. Of those drowning victims with reported life jacket usage, 83% were not wearing a life jacket.

Eight out of every ten boaters who drowned were using vessels less than 21 feet in length.
