President Gives a Rescue Boat to Bali

President Megawati Donates a Search & Rescue Boat to Bali Lifesavers.

(12/29/2003) Indonesia's Minister of Communications, Mr. Agum Gumelar, recently advised the Bali Search and Rescue (SAR) team that a new rescue boat would soon arrive on the island, a donation from President Megawati Soekarnoputri.

The fully-equipped 22-meter rescue boat will soon be delivered to Mr. I Ketut Parwa, the Chairman of the Bali SAR unit.

Currently the SAR unit has no dedicated rescue craft, relying on boats "borrowed" from the local population when an emergency arises. The Bali SAR's team distinguished itself in managing to rescue one of two participants who went missing off Bali's coast during the Bali International Jet Ski Competition held in January 2003.
