Operational Members (our volunteers)
Our Operational members are the life-blood of our organisation. Roles within the Group are varied, ranging from administrative duties to radio operators and rescue vessel skippers and crew.
Our rescue vessel crew members are required to undertake regular training to ensure a high level of competency is maintained within the Group - and to ensure we are ready to respond to whatever situation presents.
Our radio operators play a critical role in our 24/7 monitoring of all calls to MRC. Members are offered many training opportunities as well as stand-alone courses such as the Short Range Operator Certificate of Proficiency (SROCP) and First Aid.
Our radio room operates from 0730 to 1700 everyday after which home base stations take over radio watch.
