Actually, this would be the general German term for a lifeguard base. 
They are manned/run by different organisations (DLRG, ASB, Wasserwacht). 
To my knowledge they only do near shore rescuing for swimmers, surfers, 
light boats etc. Off-shore rescuing more intended for rescuing ships' 
crews is done by German Coast Guard (Küstenwache, state run) or more 
often by another non-governmental organization called Deutsche 
Gesellschaft zur Rettung Schiffbrüchiger.
