Dunbar Lifeboat Station is located in Dunbar on the South East coast of Scotland, operated by the Royal National Lifeboat Institution. The Station currently operates a 'Trent' Class All Weather Lifeboat and a 'D' Class Inshore Lifeboat. The current coxswain is Gary Fairbairn.
The Royal National Lifeboat Institution is a registered charity that saves lives at sea. It provides the 24-hour on-call service to cover search and rescue requirements out to 100 nautical miles from the coast of the United Kingdom and Republic of Ireland and a seasonal beach lifeguard service on appropriate beaches in the south west of England. The RNLI is independent from Government and continues to rely on voluntary contributions and legacies for its income.
