Paddy Corcoran Senior Maritime Operations Officer
(SMOO) at HM Coastguard, Holyhead
In the first of the Winter Talks at Holyhead Sailing Club on Thursday Evening Paddy gave a valuable insight to the structure and procedures of H M Coastguard. The Coastguard encourage visits at Holyhead CGOC, however Holyhead CGOC is a government controlled building and therefore all visits must be arranged in advance.
Paddy stressed that the SAR side of the Coastguard was a heavily regulated process and this at times may seem a little slow but he stressed that this was to ensure that the planning and methods used within the rescue were correct and competent.
In preparing SAR plans for the extensive area covered by the Holyhead Station he explained the various partner organisations which they use for different types of rescues, how the location and diversity of the situations required different types of emergency responders.
Things we ‘yachties’ can do to help:
- Make sure your CG66 IS up-to-date, you can do this on line.
