 False Alarm 

Shout Number 04/2018

Date/Time: 29/01/2018 11:35 - 13:05

Called to Hound Point for a False Alarm

People Assisted: 0

The lifeboat was called to assist in the search for a man overboard from the Hound Point oil terminal, along with Queensferry lifeboat and the Prestwick rescue helicopter. This was following the activation of a lifejacket's man overboard alarm.

It was quickly traced to an unused lifejacket that had activated in the terminal itself. A false alarm with no malice.
