The Canadian Coast Guard advised that six seasonal summer Inshore Rescue Boat (IRB) stations located around the Great Lakes will be winding down their annual summer operations.

Five IRB stations will cease seasonal operations on Monday, September 2, 2013. They are Port-Lambton, Brebeuf Island (Honey Harbor), Long Point, Hill Island and Britt.

The Thames River IRB station, located on Lake St Clair, will continue to operate on the following weekends: September 7-8; 14-15; and possibly 21-22, depending on weather patterns.

All IRB stations will reopen in the spring of 2014, coinciding with the start of the peak summer boating season on the Great Lakes in Ontario.

Eight primary Search and Rescue Stations (Tobermory, Goderich, Meaford, Amherstburg, Port Dover, Port Weller, Cobourg and Kingston) have been operational throughout the spring and summer and will continue to provide search and rescue services around the Great Lakes until their seasonal winter closure later in the year.
