Swanage Coastguard wins Dorset best team of the year award

The ‘Jean Dean Memorial Award’ for the best coastguard team in Dorset has been presented to Swanage Coastguard.

The theme for this year’s inaugural award was ‘resilience’ and it was judged that while the team had to deal with some significant incidents in the past 18 months, they coped well under pressure with a high degree of professionalism, while ensuring that emergency cover was maintained.
