Did You know...

about Dave's Text message service?

Some time ago Dave set up a service where you are able to subscribe to a text message alert system that will send you a message within minutes of our Lifeboats launching. Messages are charged at 25p each, 10p of which will be donated to the RNLI. At the moment we raise a small but significant amount of money in this way. As they say, every little helps.

To subscribe to this service simply text the following:

RNLI-SWANAGE START

to 60300 on your mobile phone. You will receive a confirmation message to say that you have successfully subscribed.

Once you have done that you will get a text everytime we are launched on service. Don't worry...you won't be exactly inundated at the moment!

Alternatively you could set up a Virtual Pager from the RNLI website to let you know whenever we (or other stations) launch.
