Still saving lives when he's off duty.......very well done. I can't believe this government is still closing the Coastguard and putting many who use our eaters and coast at risk.

It's only been used once before your post. I don't call that over use. Perhaps you could be more specific.

I was referring to its overuse in articles.

Goverment are not closing "the Coastguard". They are closing some coordination centers.

The individual may have been a Coastguard Resuce Officer that volenteers (for a service that is actually being increased) or/and a Watch Officer that works in the Coordination centre.

Either way they are not trained in water rescue in the same way that a lifeguard is, but would be well aware of the risks involved. This in my opinion makes his/her actions all the braver
