Patrols are important for a number of reasons. Promotion of the Coastguard Service, Public safety, Local knowledge checks and community engagement to name a few.
Our patrols in Swanage tend to head out around 2pm as traditionally that's when many of incidents occur so it makes sense to have a patrol out to meet that demand.
Thankfully yesterday the area was safe so Duncan engaged with the public explaining the role of the Coastguard and assisted the public in their photo requests.
