HM Coastguard Rescue Service

H M Coastguard has recently undergone the most radical reorganisation in its history. Our Search and Rescue Service is now coordinated from the new National Maritime Operations Centre at Fareham in Hampshire. Day to day coordination is still performed by the Operations Centres at Dover, Humber, Aberdeen Shetland, Stornaway, Belfast, Holyhead, Milford Haven and Falmouth. With new communications technology it is now possible for any Operations Centre to coordinate an incident anywhere in the country.

The CRS is a voluntary uniformed organization managed, trained and equipped by HM Coastguard.

Over 3,200 volunteers form the Coastguard Rescue Teams around Britain’s coastline. Coastguard Rescue Teams provide immediate assistance and local knowledge which is so vital to coastal rescue operations.

Station Officers and their teams report to full time Coastal Operations Managers who work in teams around the country. People from all walks of life are among the thousands of men and women who make up one of the most dedicated volunteer forces in the United Kingdom.

They learn specialized
water, cliff and mud rescue techniques and are adept at searching the coastline and gathering information relevant to assist search and rescue operations.

Certain teams can be equipped with rough terrain vehicles; sophisticated rescue equipment; high tech communications facilities or inflatable or cabin boats for patrols or other duties. They also make a significant contribution by assisting with HM Coastguard’s accident prevention and education campaigns.
