HOPE COVE COASTGUARD RESCUE BOAT HAS BEEN REMOVED FROM STATION AFTER ASSISTING IN SAVING A GIRL FROM DROWNING, DUE TO HEALTH AND SAFETY REASONS FROM THE MARITIME COASTGUARD AGENCY. HELP GET THE BOAT BACK TO WHERE SHE BELONGS BEFORE SOMEONE DIES. PLEASE SUPPORT THE CREW AND TEAM, SIGN THE PETITION AND FORWARD ON TO ALL FRIENDS AND FAMILY. 23/08/08- RESCUE BOAT HAS NOW BEEN RETURNED TO STATION AND IS BACK ON SERVICE BUT HAS VERY STRICT CONDITIONS, INSTEAD OF COVERING AN AREA OF 20 MILES THE CREW CAN ONLY COVER 2 MILES. THE CAMPAIGN IN STILL ON GOING TO GET THE FULL COVERAGE BACK. THE TEAM STILL NEED ALL YOUR SUPPORT.
If the MCA have impounded a boat for going to the rescue of a drowningw child, They must now test any craft that goes to the rescue of someone in destress. nd that craft must now be impounded if it fails the "tests".
Following from this, the MCA, must now introduce mandatory testing of all and any craft that could be used to rescue someone in distress as required by Regulation 33 of SOLAS.
Failure to do so will, (not could), result in a person in charge going to the rescue of a casualty when their craft does not meet MCA safety codes for rescue craft.
Time to get shot of these pathetic beaurocrats. A blight on society.
is the mca fit for purpose?
is the rnli in on the confiscation of a competitor's rescue boat?
this is quite unbelievable.
