Our crews often have to work with other emergency services Police, Ambulance, Coastguards and the Fire Brigade.
Bridlington Auxiliary Coastguard were invited to the station last night to demonstrate how and when they use the rescue rope system.
The rescue rope is used when a person is in the sea or in a flood situation were it is possible to reach the casualty by wading to them.
Equipped with a life jacket and clipped to a life line held by a colleague on shore a coastguard can enter the water and walk to the casualty to give assistance.
After the demonstration and questions the attending coastguards were shown round the lifeboats and station.
