OU66 DNY HM Coastguard Mitsubishi L200 This vehicle is based at the Coastguard’s Bridlington base (pictured). The Truckman rear carries various rescue equipment for use on cliffs and other parts of the coastline.
Rocket Rescue Cart
This horse-drawn cart was stationed at Bridlington and was built at some point between 1870 and 1910. Equipment carried includes rope ladders, cork helmets, cork lifebelt and rope with a cane attached to one end. Regular exercise drills allowed the volunteers to perfect rescue techniques and prize money was awarded to those who could throw the farthest.
G-MCGA A Sikorsky S-92 that became operational in Sumburgh from June 2013. This was brought in by Bristow as they took over the SAR provision. The older aircraft are moved to Ireland to continue their good work.
HF51 LVR A Nissan Terrano II that is based on Northumberland’s Holy Island or Lindisfarne. The island can be accessed by a causeway twice a day during low tide, but outside of these times it is a true island.
