Did you know? The lifeboat is crewed by volunteers.

When a call comes in, crew members may be at work, or at home. The coastguard pages the crew and they jump into action, attending the lifeboat station as quickly as they can do safely. Once at the station a flurry of activity occurs: the best team for the job from the available crew is picked arrangements are made to ready the boats and tractors whilst the crew are kitting up communication is maintained with the Coastguard to get as much information as possible the boats leave the boathouse as preparations for launching continue along the beach LAUNCH !
