Latest lifeboat launches

RNLI lifeboats around the UK and Ireland are on call 24 hours a day, ready to respond to any emergency at sea.

With an average of 23 callouts a day, there's most likely a lifeboat out on a rescue right now.

This map shows which lifeboat stations have been out in the last 48 hours. The map is powered by the crew pager system.
