Stormy Stan has a busy day at Beaumaris RNLI open day

Lifeboats News Release

Stormy Stan has a busy day during the Beaumaris Lifeboat Open Day, assisting with first aid and traffic control in the high street.


Stormy Stan
After meeting many of the public in attendance at the lifeboat station, Stormy Stan decided to stretch his legs and with two of the lifeboat crew in attendance went for a walk to Beaumaris High Street.

After a short rest, Stormy was returning to the lifeboat station when the team came across a road traffic collision between a car and a pedestrian. The crew member dressed as Stormy Stan and the two lifeboat crew - including a casualty care trained volunteer - went to the assistance of the pedestrian.

The casualty had been taken aboard an ambulance for evaluation pending the arrival of the police when a tractor cavalcade of over 40 tractors from Llanddona arrived at the scene. Stormy Stan was then diverted to assist with traffic control until the arrival of uniformed police officers.

Stormy Stan and his crew then returned to the lifeboat station to carry on with their fundraising duties at the Lifeboat Open Day.
