An enquiry last month to our website asked "How do you get in touch with the Coastguard if I need them?"
Slightly worrying these days that people still don't who the Coastguard are or how to contact us.
If your house was on fire ...... 999 ( or 112) ask for Fire
Crime in progress ......999 ( or 112) ask for Police
Medical Emergency ......999 ( or 112) ask for Ambulance
Maritime Incident, cliffs or beaches ... 999 ( or 112) ask for COASTGUARD
Boat Owners should also have a VHF radio
For less urgent enquiries in the Dorset area you can contact
Portland Coastguard on 01305 760439
