How the employee got involved and why

I joined by the desire I had to help the community, seeing how many people died on the beaches for improper use or for unsafe behavior. I met the Valparaiso Lifeboat when I was very young and my father, who was a sailor, told me that these brave men crossed the great waves at times of heavy storms to go to rescue sailors from ships, when I reached the age and I could Being in the city of Valparaiso living, I joined promptly. Today I am part of the official status, I am 10 years of volunteer and I am the Telecommunications Officer.

What work does the employee do for charity?

I am currently developing in the area of telecommunications and navigation security, where I take care to keep the officer on duty informed of the different navigation risks, tracing directions in the navigation chart, operating electronic navigation equipment in addition to maintaining the safety of navigation completely in terms of collisions and / or approaches and to the different emergencies to which we turn.
