Whitstable was one of the first 10 inshore lifeboat stations in the UK and Republic of Ireland. The crew have received four awards for gallantry, and also been recognised by Her Majesty The Queen in the honors lists.

We answer approximately 60 to 70 calls per year. All the crew are volenteers who respond using a pager system which is activated by the Coastguard
