All change – Lyme Regis Coastguard have moved to Facebook

HM Coastguard is the only emergency service paid for directly by central government. The Police, Ambulance and Fire Services are all funded through local authorities and ‘council tax’ The Coastguard is part of the Department of Transport and is therefore a Government organisation. The Government decided a number of years ago that there were too many sources of Government information and that the public were confused. They decided that all government websites must be located in one place.

The culmination of this website merger will take place later this year when all Government website move to a GOV.UK domain. This means that we are unable to post information that might lead the public to believe that this is an official site.

We are encouraged to have an officially accredited Facebook account. This will continue to report our ‘shouts’ and include information about the wider Coastguard community. Please visit us at
