RNLI lifeboat crew test new mud rescue equipment with Coastguard

On 5 December 2018 members of Morecambe’s volunteer RNLI Rescue Hovercraft crew had a successful training session with Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA) Managers.

The MCA regional managers came throughout the United Kingdom to Morecambe Bay, to test a wide range of new mud and sand rescue equipment and were assisted by Morecambe volunteer RNLI Rescue Hovercraft crew.

Andrew Wright, Hovercraft Commander said: “The training session was an ideal opportunity for both the Coastguard and RNLI volunteer crews to work closely together to evaluate new equipment and learn new improved techniques to rescue trapped people in mud and sand, in an emergency situation.”
