The current Fleetwood Lifeboat station was built in 2005, this state of the art lifeboat station is also the home to the Fleetwood Coastguard. The station was designed by a local Architect, Mr Eric Foster and partly funded from the legacy of Mr Harry Jackson, in memory of Annie Jackson, his late wife. Annie acted as Mayoress from 1942 to 1943 when her father was the Mayor of Fleetwood.

The lifeboat crew moved in to this new station in November 2005. On 15th July 2006, Annie Jackson’s nephew, Mr David Thompson handed the building over to the R.N.L.I. and it was officially opened by Chris Thomas of The MCA and Fleetwood RNLI Chairman, Frank Hardman. Fleetwood lifeboat crew member and Chaplain, Rev. Stephen Cooper and the ports Royal National Mission to Deep Sea Fisherman Superintendent, Sue Byrne conducted a Service of Dedication.

Covid-19 (Coronavirus)

At Fleetwood RNLI, our volunteers and staff strive to be the best to ensure the safety of people at sea. However, in response to the current guidance, aimed at slowing the spread of Covid-19 (Coronavirus) and to ensure the crew and volunteers remain effective, we are kindly asking visitors and non-essential personnel, to refrain from attending the lifeboat station.

We would like to thank everyone within the Fleetwood and Wyre community for their continued support, but unfortunately, until further notice, we will be unable to offer tours and will need to cancel tours already booked, in a bid to limit the spread of Coronavirus.

We will continue to keep you updated and we hope you understand the health, safety and wellbeing of our volunteer crew is a priority to ensure we can continue to save lives at sea.

We would like to assure you that Fleetwood RNLI will continue to save lives at sea, 24/7, 365 days a year, when required.
