Coastwatch Redcar is run and managed by a team of dedicated volunteers. They come from a variety of backgrounds, Education, Police Force, Armed Forces, Fishing Industry, RNLI, Offshore Industry, Merchant Navy, Engineering and many more.
Maritime experience is not a priority as full training is provided with no pressure on hours attended, however some knowledge of safety at sea would be an advantage.
Our station is equipped with VHF Radio, AIS, Radar, Visual Aids, Local Radio Comms., CCTV and other equipment relative to the nature of our work.
When training is complete volunteers are expected to work either a 2 or 4 hour watch any day throughout a seven day week.
We have excellent facilities at the station and if you are interested in joining our team give us a ring or call in the station for a chat and see how we work. The station is manned from 0800hrs to 1600hrs every day throughout the year.
