Episode 23 - The Sound that Stops the World: Paul Fisher

The RNLI’s Senior Operations Manager explains how a lifeboat crew comes together.

How were lifeboat crews alerted in the days before pagers? What if a crew member’s pager goes off during Christmas dinner? Or a wedding? And why is a shout called a shout? The RNLI’s Paul Fisher reveals the surprising ways in which volunteer crews have been called into action to save those they’ve never met. The methods may have changed, but the lifesavers’ commitment and selflessness remain.
