Since the 1980s Life Raft + Survival Equipment has played a key role in offering and servicing safety equipment to ensure readiness as well as a safe and successful voyage to the finish line. According to Jim O’Connor, president of LRSE, “We’ve been so involved, for so many years, with the Newport Bermuda Raced and the Safety at Sea Seminars,
that becoming an Official Sponsor of the race is an important reminder that we’re serious about safety, and that safety is first.”
LRSE is creating training videos
for the proper use of safety equipment, response in an emergency situation, and general information about dates and deadlines that competitors must know in order to meet the safety requirements of the race. Close attention to this vital information and deadlines will help competitors obtain the necessary equipment to meet race requirements.
LRSE’s mission is to build lifelong relationships by providing the highest-quality solutions through unequaled experience, knowledge and integrity. The LRSE service center is located in Tiverton, R.I., and is one of the largest U.S. Coast Guard-approved servicing facilities in the country. LRSE offers a pick-up and delivery service with partner locations throughout the Northeast in Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, and Rhode Island. The team is personable and ready to help ensure your equipment will save your life.
