Island Life Series - Specials

Tuesday, August 25th, 2020 - 26 minutes

William King zooms in on the various emergency services looking after the Isle of Man. The series listens in on training exercises and shifts and hears from representatives from across the Coastguard, Fire Service, Civil Defence, Isle of Man Constabulary, Ambulance Service, RNLI and St John Ambulance.

In the first episode of Responders, William King focuses on the coastguard and the RNLI. At a training exercise of the Peel RNLI, we learn about the organisation’s work and speak to Kevin Scott, the rescue teams manager. Then after a short tour of the Douglas Lifeboat Station, Coxswain Edd Christian tells William about his own time in the RNLI, and the work of the charity on the Isle of Man.
