 False Alarm 

Shout Number 34/2011

Date/Time: 04/11/2011 20:05 - 21:30

Called to Fairway Buoy for a False Alarm

People Assisted: 0

Following reports of a suspected red flare, the lifeboat was launched to carry out a search. The first informant, from the Cockenzie area, had witnessed a suspected red flare in the Kirkcaldy bay area. The lifeboat carried out a search of this line. The Coastguard carried out further enquiries on shore, and after an hour decided to halt the search. The callout was classed as a false alarm with good intent.
