We are often referred to by several different names and this reflects the changes to the Coastguard over the years.

HM Coastguard Swanage 

Swanage CRT - Swanage Coastguard Rescue Team 

Swanage BURT - Swanage Back Up Response Team

Swanage IRT -  Swanage Initial Response Team

Then some of the older ones which crop up.

Swanage CRC - Swanage Cliff Rescue Company or Coastguard Rescue Company

Swanage Cliff Rescue Team , a slight amendment on the. CRT used when there were different elements to the Coastguard team.

Whichever is used its a group of volunteers dedicated to maritime rescue
