DFS Renewed 2022

Story Image

Following our Declared Facility Status (DFS) assessment last week, we are proud to say that we retained that status.

A DFS is required by HM Coastguard for an NCI Station to be fully integrated with the UK Search and Rescue (SAR) organisation. This year, April 7th was the date for the annual review of our status and once again it turned out to be a successful day for Teignmouth NCI.

Retaining our status means we have demonstrated the necessary competencies, and skills, to continue to work in partnership with the other Search and Rescue (SAR) services.

The assessor spent over six hours in the lookout observing the skills of the watchkeepers from two consecutive watches. At the end of the visit, he had no hesitation in recommending that Teignmouth NCI should continue to hold it's Declared Facility Status.

He described the station as being happy and efficiently run and he complemented the Station Manager on her comprehensive knowledge and excellent leadership skills. He also praised our excellent training programme, making specific mention of how that has been kept going throughout Covid restrictions.

All in all an excellent day - well done Teignmouth NCI.

SS Schiller

Story Image

Last Thursday our Members enjoyed a talk from local poet and published author, Ian Royce-Chamberlain on the fascinating story of the German origin freight and passenger ferry SS Schiller. The Schiller was wrecked on rocks off the Isles of Scilly in 1875 and the talk was entitled 'Not Forgotten - Nicht Vergessen'.

He was accompanied by his partner Viginia Griem a local painter, potter and illustrator, her illustrations accompanied the talk alongside the story and poems, beautifully read by both.

There is also a booklet of the story available for £6 including postage. If you would like to order a copy, please contact our Social Secretary using the link below:
