Station visits to Irish Coastguard MRCC Dublin



Station training visits to Irish Coastguard MRCC Dublin

Dun Laoghaire RNLI crews have been visiting the Irish Coastguard service's Marine Rescue Co-Ordination Centre (MRCC) and coast radio station based in city centre Dublin over the last few weekly training sessions.  The state of the art facilities handle everything from routine radio traffic to pollution incidents as well as co-ordination of marine emergencies.  The RNLI lifeboats at 43 stations around the coast are "declared resources" available to the Irish Coastguard and are requested to respond to various types of incidents at immediate notice 24 hours a day, year round.

Thanks to Kyron, Declan and Jim from the Dun Laoghaire Coastguard Unit for organising the visits to MRCC Dublin and to all the officers there for their hospitality.

Desktop Virtual Pager

You can receive alerts directly to your own PC desktop whenever the lifeboat launches on a rescue. The RNLI has a unique 'Virtual Pager' that will tell you whenever a station's crew has received a call on their own paging system.

For operational reasons, there is a delay of several minutes between the the real pager alert and the Virtual Pager going off. We also ask you not to go to the station while an operation is in progress. Click here for more details.
