Lifeboats and their volunteer crew are truly available 24/7, whatever the weather, to assist those who need help.

I'm assuming that the brave lads & lasses must have some kind of on-call duty rota. Otherwise they'd have to be teetotal hermits.

A boat local to me works a four team rota (each crew being rota'd for one week at a time) I'm not sure if that is the norm. I believe that on very long shouts (e.g. searching overnight and the next day) that an off duty team will take over.

I believe each station runs its own crewing system. However, I'm pretty sure that the MCA advise / legislate that each deployed crew must be refreshed every 4 hours. For the exact details google the "Rescue boat code of practice".

I would like to wish all the RNLI crews a happy Xmas and hope they do not get a call out.

Thanks for all your great work throughout the year.
