Welcome to NCI Caister lookout station.
PLEASE FEEL FREE TO READ ON BUT WE ADVISE THAT, DUE TO ONERUS COVID19 RESTRICTIONS IMPOSED BY OUR LANDLORD, THE STATION HAS HAD TO CLOSE. WE WILL INFORM READERS OF OUR REVISED OPERATION IN DUE COURSE.
The NCI watchroom occupies the former Lifeboat Station look-out by kind invitation of the independent Caister Volunteer Lifeboat Service (CVLS). The Station was initially opened in 2011 and formally, in 2012, by the local BBC television journalist and broadcaster, Susie Fowler-Watt.
The station at Caister is unique amongst NCI look-outs in that it is situated within operational lifeboat facilities as opposed to redundant Coastguard watchstations or other coastal buildings more usually taken up by the charity. That said, despite our unique location, we are no different to our NCI colleagues elsewhere; whilst we have a close working relationship with CVLS, we adhere to strict NCI protocols regarding the recording and reporting of incidents and we respond, as directed by HMCG, in our role as an integral part of the Search and Rescue community.
