Newquay Coastguard History

Although Newquay Coastguard Association affiliated with The Coastguard Association, was only formed in February 2012, it was done so to help raise funds for the Newquay Coastguard Rescue Team.

Her Majesty’s Coastguard (HMCG) established in 1822, has a long and varied history. It is a section of the Maritime and Coastguard Agency responsible for the commencement and strategy of all maritime search and rescue within the UK. This includes the coordination of adequate resources to respond to persons within in distress at sea, or to persons at risk of injury or death on the cliffs or shoreline of the United Kingdom. It is also responsible for land based search and rescue helicopter operations from 2015. Although HMCG is not a military force, interestingly it is however a uniformed service.

The Coastguard Rescue Service is made up of 352 teams located near the coast in stations around the UK. There are approximately 3500 Coastguard Rescue Officers and they carry out rope rescue, mud rescue, water rescue and search duties in all weathers and at all times.
