Welcome to the website of the Loughor Inshore Lifeboat.

The Crew of the Loughor Inshore Lifeboat are on-call 24 hours a day to help preserve life in and around the Loughor Estuary.

The Lifeboat is one of around 47 independent Lifeboats set up around the country, who are not part of the RNLI and receive no funding from them, although we do work together on exercises and call-outs. On the sub menus you will find all the information about the station, including photos of the crew and the Lifeboat currently on station, as well as a history of the station and also of the call-outs that we have attended.

The next call-out could come at any time, day or night, and the crew will always attend, whether they are at home or in work. Our crew come from all walks of life, we have students, a mechanic, a postman, a computer consultant and also a finance manager on the crew. We currently have over 20 crew members who are trained to the highest possible standard, so that when the call comes in, they will respond in the best possible way.
