Playing our part in the fight against Covid-19


Our teams across the UK played their part in the fight against Covid-19 over the long Easter weekend, providing help and support to other emergency services, local authorities and NHS bodies.

Dozens of coastguard rescue teams were asked through local resilience forums to patrol beaches and coastal hotspots, provide safety advice and report any incidents or large groups of people to local police.

Coastguards were also out and about on the streets of Cardiff supporting Cardiff Council and South Wales Police by patrolling the city with a clear message, broadcast by loud hailer, to 📢 #StayHomeSaveLives.

By providing mutual aid to other category 1 responders we are supporting frontline services, providing help to the vulnerable in our communities and supporting government policy.
