Along with NCI Runton other organisations help keep our shoreline and coastlines safe. These organisations like the National Coastwatch institution (NCI) are voluntary organisations. NCI Runton works with these organisations in emergency situations when requested to by HM Coastguard.
NCI Runton Coastwatch Station: NCI Runton is a new purpose built station with panoramic views from Runton through to Cromer. The building is easily accessible via an access ramp with adjacent parking facility. NCI volunteer watchkeepers provide the eyes and ears along our coastline, monitor radio channels and providing a listening watch in poor visibility. They are trained to deal with emergencies, provide a vital link with all the emergency services and can provide an emergency contact point on land for both sea and shore users.
RNLI Cromer Lifeboat:
RNLI Cromer is another invaluable resource that has long been established, with their fundamental purpose of "Saving Life at Sea". They are one of the organisations we liaise with, when incidents occur.
