Four RNLI Cromer crew members pass important assessments during Covid 19 lockdown

Four crew members at RNLI Cromer have passed important assessments, which enable them to be fully operational members of crew. The work has all been completed online as the station remains closed but operational.

 Although RNLI Cromers boathouses are closed to the public and can only be accessed by crew when requested to attend to a launch, all crew members have been continuing to complete necessary courses.

The four have worked on the following:

  • Fiona Keenaghan - Incident reporting, Hazardous substances, Risk assessment, Tides and tidal streams.

  • Kate Berry - Helicopter opps, Weather and tides, Watchkeeping

  • Emma Tuck - Incident reporting, Roles and responsibilities Command.

  • Kharn Brown - Personal Safety and Wellbeing.

John Redmond, Lifeboat Operations Manager for Cromer’s RNLI Lifeboat, says: ‘We are very proud of these crew who have worked hard and with a lot of dedication to pass these requirements to become fully trained members of our lifeboat crew’.

In Cromer there are two boathouses, one for the All-Weather Lifeboat "Lester" on the pier and the other for the Inshore Lifeboat on the east promenade. This boathouse was originally built in 1902 for the then rowing and sailing lifeboat Louisa Heartwell. Also on the east promenade you'll find the Henry Blogg Lifeboat Museum. The whole town is proud of the man referred to as 'the greatest of the lifeboatmen', who gained national fame in the first half of the 20th century when navigation around the Norfolk coastline was particularly hazardous in easterly gales.
