Welcome to Rockingham Volunteer Sea Rescue Group

Rockingham Volunteer Sea Rescue Group is located at Point Peron, with its Headquarters housing Cape Peron, Crew Room, Training Centre and the VN6KC Radio Tower. The FSR Jaimee Lee is permanently moored on the jetty adjacent to the public ramps, fuelled and ready to respond at a moment’s notice.

 

Since its conception the Rockingham Volunteer Sea Rescue Group’s membership has grown to 450 members of which 65 are “active”, manning the rescue vessels, the radio tower and telephones to provide the boating public of Rockingham and surrounding districts with emergency coverage 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

 

The duty crew man our rescue vessels and are on standby for a period of 24 hours, with crews rotating over a 7 day period, 365 days per year. We also have administration staff undertaking various duties at our Headquarters, all of which are volunteers and local to Rockingham.

 

Duty Radio Officers commence work at 0600 hours, standing 4 hour radio watches until 2200 hours every day of the week in the summer months (September through to April). An overnight telephone watch is maintained on our Emergency Number 9528 2222. Radio watch hours are reduced in the winter months  (May to August) 0700 hours to 1800 hours , with a telephone watch operating from 1800 to 0600 the following day.

Hello all,
just and update, at our HQ we will be getting a new Colourbond Garage erected outside our Radio room thanks to the kind Donation from the Rockingham Rotary Group.
To get things started we have to sell our 40ft Container.
the Container is in very good condition, it has no leaks and has got easy open doors with good waterproof seals. It has a little surface rust on one side and only two small dents on the roof. $2000.00
call me if you would like to view the inside or any other questions.

Out on the water, we often see power boats failing to observe fundamental right of way rules with many Skippers applying rules of the road instead of rules for powerboats. Australia follows internationally established rules for boating.

Golden Rule: Look to the right, give way to the right, turn to the right (collision avoidance) and stay to the right in channels.

Always remember: Right has might!!
