Callout 637

Posted on Thursday Mar 29, 2018

HM Coastguard paged LNR at 23:00 on 28th March and requested the Kinnego and Ardboe lifeboats launch following reports of a flashing light being seen on the lough from the east shore. The first informant believed that this may have been an SOS.
Both lifeboats launched and conducted and extensive search from the Battery Harbour and Kinnego Marina to and along the Eastern Shore. With nothing seen all units were stood down and returned to base.
The first informant did the right thing when they believed someone could have been in trouble.
We at LNR would rather be called out and not needed opposed to the opposite.
