The most asked question was probably 'Are you scared of heights?' when looking over the cliff rescue gear; followed by 'I'm not sure I could do that!'.
Well the answer to the first question is yes and no.
A healthy respect for the cliffs, combined with good training, good kit and team support makes it a lot easier. People join for all sorts of reasons and not all volunteers want to go over a cliff; well that's just fine- it's not obligatory.
So if you fancy making a difference to your community and training to become a HM Coastguard Rescue Officer, please get in contact.
