Created in 1868, the Carro rescue station is located at the southwestern tip of the Côte Bleue.
Its geographical position makes it a strategic rescue station for maritime navigation between the Camargue, the entrance to the Gulf of Fos and Marseille.
It is one of the first resorts created in the Mediterranean. Since its creation more than 150 years ago, the station has carried out more than 3,300 rescues.
The Carro SNSM station has an all-weather canoe (CTT) of 17.60 m allowing to intervene in all conditions.
Its vocation is to provide voluntary and free aid to human lives in danger, at sea and on the coasts.

The aim of the CTT73 association is to come to the aid of the Carro National Sea Rescue Society.

Les Sauveteurs en Mer (SNSM) is an association governed by the Law of 1901, recognized as being of public utility and assuming a public service mission in Metropolitan France and in the overseas departments.
Throughout the year and during the summer season, 1,300 SNSM lifeguards monitor the bathing areas set up along the coast and regulated by the mayor - provide assistance to bathers in danger - assist users of beach gear ( windsurfing boards, pneumatic machines, kite-surfing, small sailboats, etc.) in difficulty and administer first aid to accident victims and alert rescue units, firefighters or ambulance services.
