Safety & Rescue vessels are available for both ‘blue-light’ call-out assistance or industrial, commercial and leisure duties where a risk assessment has shown that a qualified and highly experienced boat and crew are needed to minimise risk of accidental drowning.

Two-man teams include Coxswain and Able Bowman. A three-man team would include the former plus either an additional DEFRA Module 3 (Concept of Flood Operations guidelines) Rescue swimmer or medical first responder with full pre-hospital care kit including automatic external defibrillator and oxygen.

A ‘Support’ vessel which is operated by a single coxswain is also available for crew transfers and general ‘run-about’ duties.
