More crew for Ferragudo ISN rescue centre

Portugal’s maritime authority boss has announced plans to hire more crew for the Ferragudo ISN rescue centre, one of the busiest in the country.

This year the Ferragudo lifeboat has already been called to over 70 emergency situations at sea and Portimão port captain Ricardo Arrabaça believes that a boost in staff numbers is needed to “allow crew members to rest and ensure that the centre is always ready to act”.
