Empowering Coastguard Teams with Beyond Driving’s Training Program

Beyond Driving is thrilled to announce the successful commencement of our driver training program with the Coastguard in Lerwick, Shetland. Today marked the first day of Lantra Trailer Handling training, covering all necessary legislation for full compliance along with essential practical skills. Against the backdrop of stunning weather and breathtaking scenery, participants embarked on a journey towards enhancing their capabilities on the road.

The Vital Role of His Majesty’s Coastguard

As one of the UK’s foremost 999 services, His Majesty’s Coastguard plays a pivotal role in safeguarding lives around the coastline and at sea. Operating 24/7, 365 days a year, the Coastguard is the nation’s national maritime emergency service, offering assistance to those in distress with unwavering dedication and commitment.

Dedicated Volunteer Network

At the heart of the Coastguard’s operations are over 300 coastguard rescue teams comprising approximately 3,500 volunteers. These local heroes, serving as coastguard rescue officers, respond to a wide array of incidents, including challenging cliff and mud rescues, demonstrating remarkable courage and selflessness in their efforts to keep communities safe.

Professional Expertise and Response

In addition to its volunteer force, His Majesty’s Coastguard boasts over 400 highly trained staff who handle a diverse range of services, responding to over 36,000 incidents annually. Spread across the UK, from Falmouth to Shetland, the Maritime Rescue Coordination Centres (MRCCs) oversee operations along more than 11,000 miles of coastline, coordinating the deployment of various assets, including independent and RNLI lifeboats, helicopters, and aircraft support.

A Multifaceted Mission

Beyond its primary search and rescue role, the Coastguard is also tasked with responding to pollution events, monitoring vessel movements in UK waters, and undertaking salvage operations on behalf of His Majesty The King, including the retrieval of wreck and royal fish.
