Tomorrow, March 6, 2008, UK Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA) personnel will be striking for 24 hours. Therefore, it is highly recommended that UK mariners postpone all emergencies until Friday, March 7th. Beachside assistance (as in the above photo) will be subject to limited availability.

I’d still recommend postponing any casualties or emergencies until Friday. ;-)
I understand emergency services will be available.
