A word from the coastguard


Hartlepool Coastguard Rescue Team

Over the weekend our colleagues at HM Coastguard Shoreham were tasked to a huge search to find a possible person in difficulty in the water.

The reason for the search was a Kite surf board washed up on the beach with no owner.

The search involved Coastguard Land teams, a Coastguard Helicopter alongside both inshore and offshore Lifeboats.

The Search lasted four hours while the owner of the board was safely at home.

If you own a Surf board, Kite board, Paddle board, Kayak, Canoe, You can get FREE waterproof stickers to write your contact details on.

If your board is lost at sea it will tell us straight away who to contact.

It could save your life. Please order these FREE stickers.

Two minutes of your time could save hours of ours. In a coastal emergency Dial 999 and ask for Coastguard.

That's a great idea for anyone that has a Surf board, Kite board, Paddle board, Kayak or Canoe. They'd be able to alert you it's been found, and save time for them too not having to search for a possible person lost. I'll have to forward this to my friend that does a lot of surfing down in Cornwall. Thanks for sharing.
