The crew at Chiswick lifeboat station currently comprises nine full timers and a panel of 50 volunteers. Crew positions are full, there is a wait list of many years.
There is a minimum commitment of two 12 hour shifts per month and recruits are expected to be available for a minimum of two years. Training at evenings and weekends is in addition to the shifts. Volunteers need to live within a couple of miles of the lifeboat station.
Another way to be involved with activities for the lifeboat is to become a member of Friends of Chiswick RNLI.
