Rhyl-RNLI-lifeboat-crew-Medivac-from-vessel-5-miles-out

The man had become unwell after working on a windfarm structure. Specially-trained personnel on site checked the man and decided the best course of action would be to evacuate him ashore, to be seen by hospital staff. Rhyl lifeboat crew were paged and launched within 8 minutes, coming alongside the transfer vessel some 10 minutes later. The man was transferred to the lifeboat and into the care of the crew’s first-aid-trained personnel. The man was delivered ashore to a waiting ambulance crew and the lifeboat crew returned to station at 11.20am.

Coxswain Martin Jones of Rhyl RNLI lifeboat says ” This shows how the plan for the windfarms is well executed by all agencies involved to ensure a swift transfer of casualties ashore”.

The volunteers of Rhyl’s Inshore and All-weather lifeboats will be attending at Rhyl harbour on Saturday 7 June at 6pm, to be part of the ceremony to bless those who go to sea . This service was usually held on the first Sunday after Ascension Thursday, but the tides were not right, and so the 7 June was chosen, to ask for spiruitual blessing on all who go to sea, and also to the emergency services who assist them. The ceremony will be undertaken by the Reverend Andy Grimwood of St. Thomas’ Church, Rhyl; with Rhyl silver band in attendance. It is hoped that this  service will take place annually after a period where it had been discontinued due to the new harbour extension works. The service will be held on the outer pontoon of Rhyl harbour, on the Kinmel Bay side, at about 6pm, and the public is cordially invited to come along and join in. There is ample parking and space for onlookers. The lifeboats will attend, together with local charter fishing boats, and other leisure craft. Hopefully, the weather will allow a small parade of boats out to sea after the service.
