    999 – WHATS YOUR EMERGENCY?

    Hastings RNLI is organising what promises to be the biggest ever Emergency Services Day that the town has ever seen – and it is all happening this September.

    It’s a call no one likes to make, but if you’ve ever needed to dial 999, it‘s likely that one of the organisations represented at the Hastings Emergency Services Day will have come to your aid.

    Over twenty-two organisations have so far confirmed they will be coming, including of course the RNLI, East Sussex Fire and Rescue, Sussex Police, and the South East Coast Ambulance Service. But it’s not only the big organisations that will be represented, local voluntary groups including Hastings Voluntary Lifeguards, Beachy Head Chaplins, Sussex 4×4 Response and Search Dogs Sussex will also there, all demonstrating to the public the emergency services they provide.

    Hastings Lifeboat Operations Manager, Peter Adams said. ‘This is going to be a fantastic day out for all the family. We’ll have organisations representing literally hundreds of emergency responders from throughout Kent and Sussex, and we invite everyone to come along to see just what they do.’

    This free event will take place on Sunday 14th September at the Stade Open Space and Hastings Lifeboat Station, from 10.00 until 4.00 in the afternoon.

    More information will be available in the run up to the event at www.facebook.com/hastingslifeboat

    RNLI LIFEBOATS TACKLE PIER BLAZE

    Published on August 1, 2014 in Uncategorized

    All Weather Lifeboats from Hastings and Newhaven joined lifeboats from Eastbourne on Wednesday afternoon after a fire started on Eastbourne Pier.  The pier which was packed with visitors on a sunny afternoon was swiftly evacuated with no reports of any injuries, however the fire took hold and was soon burning out of control.

    Lifeboat crews assisted East Sussex Fire and Rescue Service in tackling the fire from the sea and after several hours the fire was contained to the shoreward end.  The fire was eventually put out with the majority of the pier being saved.

    A massive team effort by all emergency services and organisations involved!

    On two recent occasions management staff from the RNLI attended the station and put the crew through their paces.  Pete Sharrod, Phil Jones and Billy Sutton were all recently assessed by Allen Head, Divisional Operations Manager who passed them all out as D-Class Helmsman.  Allan assessed their skills in command & leadership, search & navigation and boat handling.

    A big well done also goes to our launcher Claire who was also officially passed out as a Tractor Driver.  Claire was assessed by Rob our RNLI Divisional Technical Manager who watched her carry out a number of manoeuvring & technical skills & in launching & recovering our ALB.

    To achieve these goals all of these volunteers have put in an extraordinary amount of time and effort into their training.  Well done guys!
