A call has gone out for more islanders to join their local coastguard team.

A short film, 'To Rescue', shows a cliff rescue from the perspective of a person who has fallen down a cliff and documents the moment that the coastguard rescue officer arrives with the casualty and gets them to safety.

The film is the third in a series of short films giving a brief insight into the work of the Coastguard Rescue Service. 

Coastguard rescue officers help rescue people trapped on the coast, be it on cliffs, stuck in mud or in the water and search for missing people. They report and deal with pollution and other hazards and help emergency services and local authorities during emergencies, for example flooding.

Charlie Ball, Head of Coastal Operations said: "Coastguard Rescue Officers are at the frontline in the delivery of rescue response along all the UK’s coastline. If you want to join a dynamic and skilled search and rescue team we’ll ensure you get the training and the opportunities required.  All we ask in return is that you are situated within 20 minutes of the Coastguard base, and can be available to respond."
