Rescue equipment - Offer achub 


The equipment that Coastguard Rescue Teams have is dependent on the nature of the coastline for which they are responsible.   Our team at Porthdinllaen has a varied coastline as described on our location page.
Nissan Terrano with Welsh markingsThe vehicle we are supplied with is a Nissan Terrano  which is based at the Coastguard Rescue Station at Porthdinllaen.  It is a four wheel drive SUV with seating for five and a limited amount of equipment space in the rear compartment for blankets, first aid equipment, flares (which we refer to as “pyro’s”), torches, etc.   The vehicle is also equipped with GPS, two-way marine band VHF radio, public address system and binoculars.
To carry the heavier rescue equipment we have a trailer which can be towed by the Terrano or if required by a team member’s vehicle.
The trailer holds a number of 200 metre cliff lines (ropes), portable winch, portable generator and lights, stretcher, quadpod, harnesses, holdfasts (iron stakes) and various other smaller items.
Team members are issued with individual items such as high visibility clothing, handheld radios, helmets, torches etc.Quadpod on cliff top
