A busy week for the team but not at the station. Incidents still remain low and having attended the Sector meeting last night, the other teams (Poole and Southbourne) are also down on incidents. Only St Albans remain around the previous levels of call outs.
Swanage Lifeboat had an incident yesterday just off Durlston Head, however the IRT was not requested.
This week we have provided some information to the National Trust to display in their observation hut at Middle Beach Studland. The hut was previously the old Coastguard lookout and they were keen to show the history of the hut. Special thanks to John Bentham for looking through the records.
Tonight I have given Roger (Swanage Hotel) some radio training. From the basic key words to how to receive a MayDay call if there was ever a need.
Last May we had 19 call out in the month......we have had 17 call outs all year. A very odd year
