MEET THE CREW

Our crew are a dedicated bunch! They train hard for emergency situations, with training days on Thursday evenings and Sunday mornings. All crew carry pagers and are on call 24:7 all year round, ready to respond as and when the call comes.

Ranging from boat helms, to land and radio crew, maintenance and junior crew. Everyone brings their own attributes, be it a practical skill, organisational or a cross over with their professional lives. Not all crew are sea-going, we also require people with mechanical, radio, business, fundraising and marketing skills to ensure we are able to achieve successfully all-round as a charity and keep this vital service going.

Crew train twice a week; every Sunday morning 9am – 12.30pm and Thursday evening 7pm – 9pm. During these sessions crew train in areas such as navigation, search and rescue protocol both at sea and ashore and first aid as well as maintaining all equipment and the station. The crew regularly train with our flanking stations, HM Coastguard and local Lifeguards.

In return for their dedication our crew gain valuable skills and qualifications with us. From First Aid, Radio Licence and Power Boat Licence we require our crew to hold varied qualifications. These do however come at a cost so it is also important that crew are active fundraisers, together they come up with fun events to help us raise much needed funds as well as run our regular raffles.

We invite anyone who feels they can contribute in some way to come and join us! There is always a warm welcome and the kettle is on if you would like to come to the station and meet us to discuss how you could help.
