“Saving lives on the water”
In addition to our primary role of safety on the water both on the lake and out at sea, Marine Rescue Lake Macquarie provides education for the boating public, including Boat & PWC licence courses, Marine Radio LROCP (Long Range Operator Certificate of Proficiency) and the SROCP (Short Range Operator Certificate of Proficiency) courses.
To provide these facilities requires regular fundraising by our members. Please support us when you see us, buy a raffle ticket or a sausage. Donations are always gratefully received.
Marine Rescue Lake Macquarie is available 24/7 for weather reports, radio checks, bridge bookings, and assists. We provide a Log on/Log off service for your safety and our NSW Marine Rescue Network will track vessels Coastal Cruising. All our highly trained members are volunteers, whose time is spent manning the 24/7 radio base at Swansea Heads and our rescue vessels at Pelican.
Marine Rescue Lake Macquarie receives limited Government funding through licence and registration levies. Much of our funding still relies on public support from local clubs and businesses, Radio Club memberships, and from our member's fundraising activities.
