New alert system installed at Weymouth lifeboat station

Dorset Echo: New alert system installed at Weymouth lifeboat station New alert system installed at Weymouth lifeboat station

A NEW alerting system has been installed at Weymouth lifeboat station.

Following successful trials around the coast, an alerting siren has been positioned on the inshore lifeboat boathouse.

Since losing the maroons, which were traditionally fired to warn the public of the launch of the lifeboat, the RNLI had been looking for a replacement system.

The siren will routinely be sounded between the hours of 7am and 10pm when the lifeboats are launched on service. It may also be activated outside of these hours at the discretion of the launching authority.

I am pleased to hear of the sirens that will replace the maroon. I live around the harbour and it is good to be aware of an impending launch and have notice that drivers and people on bicycles and foot will be heading towards the lifeboat station at a rate of knots and not people committing some sort of road rage. Thanks
