Hemsby Broads Rescue was paged by Humber Coastguard on the 11th of July at 21:38 to assist in the evacuation of an elderly gentleman who had suffered from a suspected stroke on board a pleasure craft at Ranworth Island.

On arrival on scene two crew transported the paramedics from the Ambulance Service to the casualty to administer immediate support. The crew then returned to the launch site to pick up two extra crew as it was deemed safest for the casualty to pilot their vessel and relocate it close to the waiting Ambulance.

The crew then worked with Winterton Coastguard, also on scene, and the medics to evacuate the casualty from the vessel into the ambulance for further treatment, and onward to Hospital.

The Hemsby Crew then returned to base to washdown and prepare equipment for the next call for assistance. Our thanks to Winterton Coastguard and our crew for another well-executed operation.

Hemsby Broads Rescue was paged by Humber Coastguard this evening after the Fire Service in Norwich requested assistance in Norwich for two persons in the water at Coslany Street. Whilst on route to the incident we were given confirmation by the Coastguard that the two persons were out of the water, safe and well.

As we started the journey back to the Station the Coastguard informed us of another incident at Reedham Ferry, a pleasure craft had lost power and was in need of assistance. We were also informed that a member of the boatyard was on scene offering assistance. As a precaution, the Crew proceeded toward Reedham Ferry while Humber Coastguard gathered an update on the developing incident.

Before we arrived, we were given confirmation that in fact the vessel had been recovered and our further assistance was no longer required. We were stood down and returned to base, ready for the next call requiring our assistance.

Thanks to all the crew for their work and to those who stayed at the station to help with the clean down.

Hemsby Broads Rescue was paged this afternoon to give assistance to the Ambulance Service evacuating an elderly female casualty from a moored pleasure craft near the Lord Nelson Public House in Reedham.

In this particular case, there was no requirement to launch the rescue boat. Members of the crew boarded the craft and assisted the Ambulance team in the evacuation of the casualty to the ambulance. We were ably assisted by Gorleston and Winterton Coastguard teams. Once onboard she was transported to Hospital in Great Yarmouth.

The husband remained on the craft and members of the crew will return to the scene in the morning to assist the gentleman to navigate his craft into Great Yarmouth so that he can be closer to his wife, while she receives treatment.

Our thanks to the crew who also remained at the station and assisted with the clean down after the operation was completed.

Hemsby Broads Rescue was paged late this evening by Humber Coastguard to locate and assist a leisure craft from Richardson's, with three persons on board, who needed assistance to find a safe mooring and were unsure of their exact location.

The vessel was located east of St Bennetts Abbey. With assistance from Winterton Coastguard team and an engineer from Richardson's, the vessel under escort from Hemsby was relocated to a safe mooring at South Walsham.

Once the vessel was secure Hemsby Broads Rescue returned to base and prepared the equipment ready for our next tasking. Thanks to all the crew who assisted with this task.

Sorry but it has to be said - idiots! In my opinion.Would you go off in a hire car in an area not known to you , without a map or a clue?! In instances of pure stupidity and ignorance I honestly believe there should be a fee charged to those who need the emergency services in this way.  Mad

Karen , they should have a map on board , it's in the blue skippers manual that's normally shoved in a draw on board that doesn't get shown to them on hand over ,

I thought that might be the case Steve, so did they just helm the boat blindly till nearly dark? I noticed reference to a Richos engineer but the call out was not relative to any  breakdown.

I expect there will be criticism of my comments but I am simply saying that IF people end up needing the emergency services when they are simply lost, then I feel a charge should be levied. Today Mike and a mooring neighbour  have helped a crew out of the water after an accidental "dunking" - incidents and accidents are always going to happen but I can't put them in the same box as being lost at dusk - yes they needed help before something worse happened but they should have to pay a fee when the volunteer crews of emergency services have to go and sort out their stupidity. Ignorance is no defence!

Sorry for hijacking the thread and if necessary I will start a new topic.
