Coastguard Rescue Officers are all volunteers who when called respond to emergencies.
Whilst the Coastguard Service is a Government Agency the feet on the ground at about 300 stations around the country including Swanage are all volunteers.
In our team we have two trainers , a business advisor , a painter , a night porter, teacher , two business owners , a plant operator , a university student and youth leader. Some would say a big mix of skills but that’s what makes a team.
So it was nice this week to receive letters from two people involved in incidents during the last month thanking the teams for their service especially one for a medical emergency who is recovering well.
