The Swanage teams very own Mr Edmunds, or coastguard of the Year, as he prefers to be known managed to break his helmet last sunday whilst training. Rumours within the team however speculate that this was a ruse so that he could get his hnds on the coveted Orange Casualty helmet. He has had his eye on this since the team got it a couple of years back. Terry is so besotted with his new acquisition that he has it pride of place in his uniform rack. Loving your work Terry!!
The Swanage Coastguard Team along will colleagues from the St Albans Coastguard Team were tasked to search for two climbers last night.
Two climbers from Devon were reported in the Durlston area had not returned after a days climbing.
The teams set off just as the local Police found their car and thankfully the two climbers inside safe and well. The pair had been climbing in the Boulder Ruckle area and the climb had taken longer than they thought. Both were a little cold but ok and were grateful that the teams had deployed to search for them.
