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 60 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.

30th August

The Crew whilst attending their own charity car wash for the Lifeboat noticed a person behaving suspiciously by the Estuary edge of the slipway from around 11:30, when approached by one of the Senior crew it became apparent that the person was not of sound mind and the Crew member eventually managed to gain his trust and they walked off the slipway together towards the car park of the boating club. The casualty had been in the boating Club prior to this and had left contact details at the bar on the back of a third parties business card of next of kin and emergency contact details the Lifeboat Crew Member contacted the police to report the incident and the South Wales Police and Welsh Ambulance service attended to assess the casualties well being. The police handed the Male over to the Welsh Ambulance Service and an Officer accompanied the casualty to Hospital to be evaluated.
