The management team brings together experienced volunteers from both stations.
One of my most memorable shouts was the first time I was transferred to a casualty vessel to deal with a casualty who was a lone yachtsman that has been hit in the head by the boom and was semi conscious. Another memorable shout was when we were launched to look for a lone yachtsman who was adrift in his dinghy south of Jersey at night. What made it interesting and challenging was that the yachtsman was unsure of his exact location with only a mobile phone for means of communication. Shortly after I joined, I was lucky to be able to travel to Poole with the crew to complete the emergency procedures course. It was a great opportunity for the crew to bond and also to see the amazing support and infrastructure that supports us the other 236 stations around the coast. The facilities and training available to all crews are first class!
