Annual Incident Analysis

These statistics assist the Board of Trustees to assess the types of incidents we deal with and direct resources to those areas most in need. They also enable them to ensure that watchkeeper training evolves in the light of changing trends.

Please note that in 2010 the criteria for recording incidents were changed.

To view a summary of the type of incidents we dealt with in a given year, please visit the Incident Summary page.

About

Currently 56 NCI stations are operational and manned by over 2500 volunteers keeping watch around the British Isles from Rossall  Point in the North West, through Wales, to the South and East of England to Hornsea in the East Riding of Yorkshire. 

NCI watchkeepers provide the eyes and ears along the coast, monitoring radio channels and providing a listening watch in poor visibility. They are trained to deal with emergencies offering a variety of skills and experience, and full training by the NCI ensures that high standards are met.
