Increased traffic on our waterways increases the risk of emergencies and other incidents and makes it more important than ever for Marine Rescue Lake Macquarie to remain a strong. A well-resourced emergency service standing ready to help in any way, can save lives on our waterways.
Marine Rescue Lake Macquarie’s volunteers are motivated to give their time, energy and service to their local communities not for financial reward but for the satisfaction of helping others in need. Every day, these dedicated men and women are manning our radio base and rescue boats 24/7, responding to calls for help, providing advice and assistance to boaters who run into trouble and often saving lives.
With your help, we can save even more lives on the water.
Marine Rescue Lake Macquarie receives limited financial support from the NSW Government and from members of the boating community. In recognition of the services we provide them they contribute to Marine Rescue Lake Macquarie through a small annual levy on their boat licence and registration fees. Many boaters join our Radio Club to show their support.
This welcome support provides about half our budget but we depend on our volunteers' committed community fundraising efforts and generous donors and sponsors for the remainder.
How can you help?
Your generous donation will help provide Communication Facilities, Training, Rescue Vessels and lifesaving equipment or if we assisted you, helps cover running costs.
