Coastwatch Redcar (DFS)

Charity description

Coastwatch Redcar (DFS) logo
Coastwatch Redcar (DFS) is one of an independent group of Coastal Surveillance Stations, operated by Volunteers and relying entirely on donations to enable us to help others, whether saving lives at sea or on the shores of our coast.

Volunteer Watch Keepers are on duty 365 days of the year during mainly daylight hours, keeping a visual watch and monitoring both VHF Radio and sophisticated Radar equipment. Any incidents requiring assistance are immediately reported to HM Coastguard who then mobilise and co-ordinate the appropriate rescue services eg. RNLI Lifeboats, RNLI Beach Lifeguards, Auxiliary Coastguard, RAF Rescue Helicopter etc. Incidents are generally within sight of the Redcar Station and we are able to give the Coastguard an accurate position along with considerable detail if local vessels are involved. Please donate to support our cause.
