Every day an average of 22 people are rescued by the RNLI’s lifeboat crews around the coasts of the UK and Republic of Ireland. This service is only made possible because of the personal courage and commitment of brave volunteers, their high quality equipment and their regular specialist training. Rescue doesn’t come cheap and is made possible by their dedication, training and commitment. People from 45 communities around Scotland volunteer to crew RNLI lifeboats and in 2008 they rescued 762 people. Over a third of these rescues took place in the dark and Scottish RNLI crews spent a total of 1,642 hours at sea going to the aid of people in need of rescue. As an independent charity they rely on public donations to ensure rescues are possible.
