Swanage Pier Rescue

I've just been going through our old video links...... I forgot about this one from 2009!

A diver was taken ill with the bends and needs a medivac to the Poole decompression chamber.....

  • Option 1 - Gareth and Tom take the boat out and have the winchman land on the back; mmmmm tricky.
  • Option 2 - Winchman lands on Swanage Pier; mmmmm tricky.

This website is brilliant. I've never seen much emergency services stuff on the coast guard before it s most just docs and firefighters. But your stuff is really fun and weird! (there's a compliment in there somewher e I promise)
Anyway I would love for you to write a guest post for my student emergency services blog. It's handed in on May 7th so if you could do it before then that would be brilliant.
The website link is www.helloemergency.co.uk
Anyway please let me know. I hope you say yes because it would be so cool!

And that request has been done and an email left on your site.

Whilst we show the lighter side of our role, its about highlighting the Coastguard Rescue Service and the 3000 Volunteers who give up so much time to look after their communities and visitors to their towns. We hope it promotes the Coastguard which is often forgotten about in the emergency services world and not forgotting there are safety message to be learnt.
