Kauai has over 60 beaches spread across 90 miles of shoreline. Most of these beaches are remote and uncrowded and are not protected by lifeguards. It is the immediate intention of the Foundation to install a sufficient number of Rescue Tubes on the beaches of Kauai within reasonable distances of each other in order that the devices will be readily recognized and easily available to the swimming public.  

Rescue Tubes stand guard 24 hours a day 365 days a year.

The Rescue Tube Foundation is dedicated to lowering the incidence of drowning by providing lifesaving Rescue Tubes at as many beaches as possible on Kauai, around the State of Hawaii and beyond. You can help save a life by contributing toward this life saving goal today. Donations are tax-deductible. You can help make Hawaii safer for your family, friends and visitors by supporting the RESCUE TUBE FOUNDATION.

Thanks to the vision of Branch Lotspeich, executive director of the Rescue Tube Foundation, and the Kauai Lifeguard Association, there are now over 200 rescue tubes throughout Kauai and over 65 lives have been saved from drowning!  Through support from Rotary Clubs and private donations and from awesome people like you, access to these rescue tubes has literally helped swimmers in peril to stay afloat for hours while waiting to be rescued by lifeguards.

 Rescue Tubes are there for all of us. Let’s enjoy our beautiful beaches and stay safe Hawaii!

Branch Lotspeich is directly involved in the assembly and creation of the rescue tube stations at the foundation’s shop in Kilauea. To find out more and to learn how you can make a difference by contributing to the cause, or donating your own Rescue Tube and witnessing its' assembly and installation, please contact the RESCUE TUBE FOUNDATION.
