The team were tasked at 01.45 this morning to assist Dorset Police with a search for a missing female.
As the team were being briefed by the Police, a Police Officer called to say the female had entered the water near to the stone quay.
The Coastguard team immediately deployed their water rescue equipment and requested the Swanage RNLI ILB.
The helicopter from NPAS attended and illuminated the scene to assist the rescuers.
The Lifeboat arrived and got the the female into the ILB some distance from the shore returning to treat the lady in the boathouse along with colleagues from the Ambulance.
The Coastguard team recovered their water technician and returned to station to wash down the equipment.
