News : Joint training with RNLI Lifeguards

On Sunday 4th July, the Southport Lifeboat participated in a joint training exercise with the RNLI Lifeguards at Ainsdale.

 

A rescue mannequin was placed in the water by Southport IRB, 300m off Ainsdale. The RNLI lifeguards had to spot the casualty and swim out too it, before calling in Southport Rescue for an evacuation.

 

The exercise was a simulation of the type of emergency that could see the two rescue services working together, and was deemed a success by all involved.

 

Further exercises are planned for the future, building a better understanding between Southport Lifeboat and the RNLI lifeguards, which will ultimately lead to a safer coastline for all.
