Helmets ? This video will answer why, Respect.

Just cant believe that people question why these brave volunteers wear helmets, they are obviously unaware of the complex and dangerous situations these people are faced with, or the conditions they work in.

If anyone ever watches the BBC programme "Saving Lives at Sea" you'll know exactly why inshore RNLI crews wear helmets

And what's the question re. IMO number. Are you suggesting that this vessel should have one LOL!!

What is about the IMO number?

I guess in a heavy swell/choppy sea it's fairly easy to get thrown around in such a small boat.

Also try Maritime & Coast Guard Agency (The Rescue Boat Code) under section 13 (Life Saving Applications including Personal Protective Equipment-PPE). The Code of Pratice for open rescue boats of less than 15 metres in length. Following link.....

Helmet? see
AND the Gecko helmet is a sleek, lightweight, robust visored headpiece with the facility to add torches, cameras, and comms equipment for wireless duplex and wired VHF. plus increased buoyancy/flotation. Compulsory for all inshore lifeboat crews.

Who knows when on a rescue mission.
Or what they might hit if pitched out of the boat.

I think it must be the water - it not only falls on their heads but incomes in from the side ;-))

Why are they wearing helmets? Is there something that can fall on their heads?
