RNLI Hoping For A Quiet Christmas

12:03am 22nd December 2013

Last year's festive season (2012) was the busiest since 1990 for the volunteers in the South West's RNLI crews... and this year they're hoping it'll be quieter.

In nine days - from the 23rd of December to New Years day- they were called out to thirty emergencies, with three launchings from Swanage.

Dave Page, Acting Regional Operations Manager for the RNLI, encourages locals to enjoy the coastline over Christmas, but gives this advice, "it's important that they are fully prepared with the appropriate clothing and equipment and know what to do in an emergency. By taking note of the safety advice on offer, I hope we can make this Christmas a quiet one for our volunteers".
