RNLI lifeboat crews protect hundreds of communities around the UK and Ireland through our 24-hour search and rescue service. To do so, they rely on the safest, most reliable lifeboats and modern stations to launch from.
Crew members are prepared to drop everything and risk their lives to save others at a moment’s notice.
Their lifesaving work is essential, often difficult and sometimes dangerous. And with only 1 in 10 volunteers joining the RNLI from a professional maritime occupation, training is especially important.
That’s why the RNLI provides its crew members with first-class training, equipment, guidance and support.
