Haverigg Inshore Rescue Station

Haverigg Inshore Rescue Team (H.I.R.T) run an independent lifeboat station at Haverigg. This was established by the community in 1973, following a tragic boating accident when a local boy drowned, just a few hundred yards from the beach. "The organisation is manned entirely by volunteers from the local communities of Haverigg, Millom and the surrounding area working closely with the local Coastguard. To date H.I.R.T. volunteers have been called out over 300 times and assisted over 200 people in difficulty at sea." (H.I.R.T. Website, 2020)
