Sunday (4th February) saw Lytham’s HM Coastguard working hard and busy training their Lost And Missing Persons Search(LAMPS) techniques. In practicing these vital, life saving procedures they were joined by and collaborated with their friends and colleagues from HM Coastguard Fleetwood and Knott-End Coastguard Rescue Team.
The volunteers focussed on practising the specialised techniques that are used by all the emergency services in order to quickly and effectively search for people who are missing in all terrains, and to then rescue, recover and administer any required immediate care.
On this occasion the volunteers combined several LAMPS techniques together to search in an enclosed wooded area, as shown in the featured photographs.
Lytham St. Anne’s News thanks the volunteers for their dedication and service.
