The first lifeboat was stationed at Spurn Point in 1810
The Humber lifeboat crew will celebrate 200 years of lifesaving with a series of events this year.
Spurn Point in East Yorkshire is home to the Royal National Lifeboat Institution's (RNLI) only full-time residential lifeboat crew.
Hundreds of lives have been saved in the North Sea by crews operating from the point over the past two centuries.
Events to celebrate the station's 200th anniversary will kick off with a fundraising dinner on 21 January.
A service of thanksgiving will also be held on 25 April at Hull's Holy Trinity Church.
Dave Steenvoorden, the station's Supt Coxswain, said: "The significance of 2010 has been on my mind ever since I took on my current role five years ago.
"What an honour to be coxswain on the 200th anniversary, I am so excited.
"We have a number of events planned throughout the year and I know RNLI supporters will also be planning special fundraising opportunities on behalf of our lifeboat station during 2010."
Andy Clift, RNLI Divisional Inspector for the North, said: "The remote location of Spurn Point means it is crucial that we have a lifeboat crew there around the clock, ready to drop everything at a moment's notice to board the lifeboat and rescue those in difficulty at sea.
"It takes a certain sort of person to be able to live in such a place, and of course we rely on the crews' families as well to support the lifeboat men in their vital role."
