Welcome to the pages of the Maritime Rescue Co-ordination Centre which is the focal point of Holyhead Coastguard’s Search and Rescue Area.
Balloted for Industrial Action - Coastguards take unprecedented action (short of strike) to fight for equal pay - 2011 Matter still not resolved by MCA
The Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA) having published the results of their consultation document to modernise H M Coastguard for the 21st century. Parliament announce changes to Station Closures, in Wales Holyhead and Milford Haven Coastguard Station remain open 24hrs a day. Swansea and our paired station at Liverpool to close
• The new and final proposals of Government are that Holyhead Coastguard will stay open networked as part of the ten stations staying open around the country. All of these stations will be operating on a 24hrs basis to coordinate Search & Rescue, one on England’s South Coast will be the UK Marine Operating Centre (MOC).
We find it sad for the Stations that will be closing, more so our paired station in Liverpool.
