The station also has a Lifeboat Operations Manager (LOM), who is responsible for authorising the launching of the boats and is their contact with most of the outside media and with Lifeboat Headquarters in Poole, Dorset. He is supported by two Deputy Launching Authorities who take over his duties when he is absent from the station. If medical advice is required the Amble station can call on the assistance of their Honorary Medical Advisor who is a local GP – Dr Long. Everyone concerned with the Amble RNLI station is of equal importance and is required to give total commitment to the RNLI. If their pager activates, each crewmember is expected to do his or her utmost to respond. All Station personnel carry an electronic pager (even to bed) as they never know when they will receive a shout.
Amble RNLI welcomes group visits as well as individual and occasional visitors. Please contact John Young, Visitor Liaison to make the necessary arrangements on (01665) 712916.
RNLI Volunteers and support
Amble Lifeboat Fundraisers (ALF) continue to look for more volunteers who can give up an hour or two each month to help organise and run various fundraising activities with all proceeds going towards saving lives at sea.
ALF meets on the first Wednesday of the month at the lifeboat station. Anyone interested please contact the Lifeboat Station or click here for more information
