The Fedderwardersiel sea rescue station is a base of the German Society for the Rescue of Shipwrecked People (DGzRS) in the fishing port of Fedderwardersiel . From there, the voluntary sea rescuers secure the area on the west side of the Outer Weser with the Wadden Sea off the Budjadingen peninsula . The shipping in the area consists of shrimp fishermen and excursion boats that go to the seal banks . In addition, sailors coming from the Jade or the Weser fairway head for the port, which falls dry at low tide, and can get stuck in the tidal channels of the Wadden Sea.
In the event of an emergency at sea, the local volunteers temporarily manned the rescue boat (SRB) Emil Zimmermann . The boat had previously been on duty at the Puttgarden sea rescue station on the island of Fehmarn and in 2020 replaced the predecessor boat Hermann Onken of the 8.5 meter class , which was given to the rescue service in Georgia .
In the event of a major distress at sea in the busy area between Jade and Weser, the neighboring stations are involved:
