Every now and then we just like to remind readers that this not an official site of HM Coastguard or the Maritime and Coastguard Agency.
The blog and associate sites are run by the member of the Swanage Coastguard Team to record for the community a unique record of the station history and team members.
The site provides information on incidents as well as aspects of life for the team members.
As volunteers of HM Coastguard we are bound by a code of conduct which is followed to ensure information is given factually and without opinion.
We would like to thank all our Partner Agencies, the community of Swanage and visitors for their continued support in the town.
In an emergency dial 999 and ask for Coastguard - non emergency, 01305 760439.
It is important situations/incidents are reported to the National Maritime Operations Centre and not local Coastguard volunteers.
