Baron Redsain Posted January 17, 2011 Report Share Posted January 17, 2011 Well done "bobdahog" A VERY valid point made against Mr â€œDonutâ€I would have thought with the â€œDonutâ€™sâ€ obvious vast experience of Operations room procedureâ€™s he would have had that poor family rescued in minutes.Alas they are now all dead! ïŒPity.Never mind at least we saved somethingâ€¦ by closing the Local MRCC Stationâ€¦Precious Taxpayers Money!If you close these Stations, Lives WILL be lost!And NO â€œMr Donutâ€ you would NOT have saved them by using the local knowledge of the teams, or the lifeboats or the helicopters, nor the local fisherman nor the butcher or the baker. Why?Cause you didnâ€™t have a clue which ones to contact? From a MOC you could I suppose narrow it down to Half the UK? So how long would that take to contact all the above people from about the Humber up to Unst? Hmmmmmm? More time than the drowning folk at Grola had, I fear.So Itâ€™s ok to lose the local knowledge at our Coastguard Station? I THINK NOT !!!
