Storms, technical damage, shipwrecks, drownings: the National Society for Sea Rescue (SNSM) intervenes more than 6,000 times a year off the French coast. These volunteer rescuers risk their lives to rescue those of others. They are increasingly called upon to come to the aid of migrants. To cope with the increase in shipwrecks of these makeshift boats, the SNSM decided to train its own volunteers in mass rescue.
These rescues of migrants hitherto supported by NGOs in the Mediterranean have been increasing for five years in the Channel between France and England
