Funded by charitable donations from the local community and sponsorship by local businesses
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.
