Save Our Life Savers – Portland SAR is to be chopped

Portland, diving, search and rescue, diving, south coast, safety, The Underwater Marketing Company, Rosemary Lunn, Roz Lunn, SAROn November 28th 2011, the British Government announced that it planned to scrap Portland’s search-and-rescue helicopter. This helicopter serves some of Britain’s most popular and perilous recreational waters and one of Europe’s busiest shipping routes.

We believe that local knowledge is paramount to providing an effective and efficient emergency service at sea, where a few minutes are often the difference between life and death. This cut will cost lives.
