Larne RNLI is currently recruiting for new volunteers for the local lifeboat station.

The recruitment is part of the RNLI’s efforts to crew the lifeboat services in different areas of Northern Ireland.

The RNLI say that the role of a lifeboat crew is to “undertake and maintain competency based training, to be on call for lifeboat ‘shouts’, to attend exercises and to contribute to the overall upkeep of the station, lifeboats and equipment”.

Those who apply should live and work within a suitable distance from the station at Larne Harbour and be aged between 17 and 65.
