Another beautiful day for our Sunday morning boathouse session! But there was no time to enjoy the beauty of the beach as our teams were busy with vital equipment checks and maintenance, plus hazardous container scenario training to help keep our beach, base and boat crews #rescueready at all times.
This isn’t something our crews are very regularly faced with, but with pollution increasing, it’s a likely scenario and it has been known along our local coastline. There are also many possibilities and courses of action depending on the contents of different kinds of container – as well as essential actions in the case of unknown contents. So, this is all essential rescue scenario training for all of our volunteer teams.
A hazardous container – would you know what to do?
Would you know what to do, or what to advise your children if any of you spot a hazardous container on the shoreline or on the beach? It’s essential that everyone knows to stay well away from the item and call 999 or 112 for the Coastguard.
IT COSTS MORE THAN £10k A YEAR TO KEEP OUR RESCUE BOAT CHARITY AFLOAT
