Emergency at sea? Call the coastguard! Leap aboard a lifeboat and hold tight as you plunge through stormy waves to help someone in need. Whether it’s a walker trapped by the tide, a child blown out to sea on a lilo or a fishing boat in trouble, the coastguard is always ready for an emergency. Find out how the coastguard is organised, and how rescue teams respond to calls by sending out lifeboats, helicopters or land-rescue specialists. Take a look at the equipment they use – flares, torches, radios and pagers, ropes, life jackets, dinghies and other vehicles. And discover some of the more unusual situations they face, like dealing with unexploded sea mines, or rescuing stranded dolphins, whales or seals!
Perfect for fact-hungry readers, this colourful and dramatic book is stuffed with information and interesting tidbits, giving a thorough insight into what coastguards do. Face-to-face panels look closely at the daily experiences of staff, while tips on how to respond to an emergency will teach children valuable life-saving skills.
