RNLI/HM Coastguard Training Exercise



The popular BBC2 program Saving Lives at Sea will show many dramatic and some maybe not so dramatic, rescues! However, what it does not show are the many hours of training the volunteer crews are required to complete, (training that is not without its own dangers). An example of this is a recent training exercise with HM Coastguard. When new crew members experienced for the first time the complex procedures of working alongside the HMCG team in casualty evacuation.
