Hemsby Broads Rescue were paged at 0305 this morning by Humber Coastguard to assist the Ambulance Service to locate and evacuate a middle aged male who had suffered with a head injury after a fall onboard the leisure cruiser he had hired with his wife.

Broads Rescue launched at Sutton Staithe and navigated to the casualty craft and boarded her to assess the situation. First aid was administered and the casualty stabilised. It was decided to avoid the risk of further injury to relocate the cruiser to a mooring close to the waiting Ambulance. Members of the crew took control of the cruiser and she was safely navigated to a mooring at Wayford Boatyard.

Once the vessel was secure the Paramedics, Bacton Coastguard and Hemsby Broads Rescue evacuated the casualty to the waiting ambulance. Thanks to Bacton for their assistance on scene and coordination and to our crew, those who attended the rescue and those who helped with the clean-down back at the boathouse.

Hemsby Broads Rescue were paged mid afternoon today by Humber Coastguard as an automatic distress beacon on board a vessel in Stalham had been received. Unfortunately the owner could not be contacted and so our assistance was requested along with Winterton Coast Guard team to investigate.

This was our first incident since the Covid-19 lockdown and so we used our new social distancing procedure. Equipped with masks and gloves the crew proceeded by road toward the suspected location of the vessel.

On route we were pleased to receive the message that the activation was in error and no persons were in harms way. We therefore returned to the Lifeboat Station.

Our thanks to those who attended the incident and to the crew who remained at the station to help with rehousing.

Hemsby Lifeboat Crew were paged in the early hours of the morning (18th June), by Humber Coastguard to assist the East of England Ambulance Service in Norwich. A gentleman in his sixties was in a vulnerable position and the Ambulance Service had requested support in the evacuation of the casualty to the waiting ambulance.

Also on scene were units from the Fire Service, Ambulance and Winterton Coastguard Team. The casualty was successfully placed in the care of the Medical team on scene, with the help of a local concerned neighbour.

Our thanks to Winterton Coastguard for their faultless coordination of the incident as usual the operation, including a challenging launch and recovery was professionally executed.

Our thanks to the Crew who worked like clockwork as usual and still managed to maintain social distancing where possible while wearing extra PPE to ensure the risk of infection was kept to a minimum. Thanks also to the Crew who maintained a presence at the station during the incident and helped with the clean down, getting the equipment ready for the next incident.

Mental health is still a major issue for many and particularly during the continued Covid-19 pandemic and its economical knock-on effects. Please be aware of those around you, the simple act of talking can have a significantly positive impact on those who are vulnerable in our wider community.

Stay safe and look after each other. Please remember we are still very keen to talk to anyone who would like to volunteer to do regular shifts in our shop or fundraise to help us maintain this important community service during these difficult times. For more information please do message us, we will be pleased to hear from you.

Hemsby Broads Rescue were paged by Humber in the early hours of the morning 19th June, requested by the Fire Service to assist in the search for a male who had fallen overboard a vessel moored near the Foundry Bridge on the River Wensum in Norwich. Also, on scene were East of Anglia Ambulance Service, the Police, Winterton and Gorleston Coastguard teams and a specialist NHS support and heart team.

After the casualty had accidentally fallen overboard, members of the public jumped in to offer immediate assistance but unfortunately were unable to locate their friend and raised the alarm.

Hemsby Broads Rescue was tasked to assist the Fire Service in the search for the casualty. Drones and a variety of specialist equipment were also used in the search. This protracted search also required a crew change to ensure fatigue did not hamper the search results.

Unfortunately, at 0545, using underwater camera equipment, the casualty was found by the Fire Service but had sadly passed away.  Our deepest sympathies and thoughts are with the family and friends of the casualty at this sad outcome.

The crew finally returned to station at 0800 to clean down and once again prepare for service. Our thanks go to all the emergency services who worked together tirelessly as a collaborative team. It is a real shame that we were not able to gain the outcome we all hoped for.

This sad incident highlights the continued need for care on the water even when moored and the need no matter how good a swimmer you may be, to always were a lifejacket when near or on our waterways in Norfolk. Please do not take unnecessary risks and stay safe.

Hemsby Broads Rescue was paged tonight (8th July 2020) by Humber Coastguard to assist a couple who had an engine failure on their pleasure boat between Cantley and Brundall.

As the exact location of the casualty vessel was unclear we launched at Cantley, their last known location and headed in their direction of travel toward Brundall.

We located the casualty vessel and confirmed the two persons on board where in good health. A member of our Crew, wearing appropriate PPE, boarded their boat to steer as we secured the vessel and towed it back to safe moorings in Brundall.

Our thanks to Gorleston Coastguard team for their assistance on scene. Once we were happy that the vessel and the couple on board were moored and safely on land, we returned to our launch point and recovered back to the Station. Our thanks also to the crew who remained in the station to asssit with the washdown and preparation of our equipment, ready for service again.  

All the crew involved wore masks and gloves and as far as is possible maintained appropriate distance during the incident.
