Jersey Coastguard is charged with the provision of 24/7 responsibility for safer seas, along with the security and protection of our maritime environment.
Our knowledge, training and commitment ensures safer, more secure and cleaner seas.
We have published our 2022 Jersey Coastguard and VTS Annual Report. 2022 was our busiest year since we started recording search and rescue incidents in 2016. The report gives high level details of what we did throughout the year.
