Blackpool RNLI volunteers assist person in the water
Blackpool RNLI volunteers were called out at 7.20pm on 26th March 2018 after a person was spotted in the sea at Squires Gate. A member of the public had entered the water & was providing assistance to the casualty when our Atlantic 85 lifeboat reached the scene & took them both to safety at Starr Gate where an ambulance was waiting. Some volunteers also attended the incident in the lifeboat station Landrover in case additional help was required. Blackpool's RNLI volunteers were already at the lifeboat station taking part in shore-based training when the incident was reported so they were able to launch the lifeboat & provide assistance within minutes.
