Types of callout
"Quite a bit of falling on the rocks, especially in the summer"
Quite a bit of falling on the rocks, especially in the summer, people slipping down cliffs, rescuing dogs, boats in distress, come back and get details off boats that have been brought back in by the lifeboat and things, helicopter landing sites at all the hospital, RVI and Freeman sites. Beach searches are quite popular at night time- I also work with police occasionally as well. They’ve actually called for people going missing during the night and from nursing homes and things so we sometimes move away from the coast and actually go quite a way inland.
