Carnvial and Coastguard

Its difficult to explain Carnival week and how the volunteer Coastguard Rescue Officers fit in.

Many of the team members take a week off from their normal jobs to enjoy the events and just be about in case of an emergency.

This came into its own yesterday when the incident happened on the carnival event field. Five team members suddenly were at scene to assist out emergency service colleagues.

After that there was a lady collapsed on the sea front which the RNLI lifeguards dealt with along with Police and Coastguard.

This was followed by a concern for two persons on a kayak , with the assistance of the lifeguards both were checked and given words of advice.

So in between incidents the team enjoy their holidays , take part in events and occasionally have a short sleep to recharge the batteries.

A coiled spring ! A short nap before the procession , # always on call
