Welcome to Rockingham Volunteer Sea Rescue Group

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).

Have a look at this great example of emergency services working together last night to help two stricken vessels who had sent a distress signal from somewhere off the coast. Volunteer Marine Rescue groups, Western Australia Police and the RAC Rescue Helicopter responded quickly to help locate them. You can see in the second photo the use of essential technology which helps the teams see at night.

With summer coming, this shows the importance of boat owners having the correct safety equipment and knowing how to use it. To find out what you need to do to stay safe on the water visit Marine Safety WA

Late yesterday, the crew aboard "Jaimee Lee" responded to an epirb west of Garden Island and located a disabled vessel 20 nm out and took it under tow. Shortly after Water Police advised that another vessel was in need of assistance some 14 nm south.
The rescue vessel "Avail" from Cockburn Sea Rescue arrived on scene and took over the tow of the first vessel, allowing "Jaimee Lee" to head south where with the assistance of the Police helicopter they located the second vessel.
This vessel had suffered a major engine failure and was subsequently towed back to our Point Peron base arriving back at about 2230 hours.

Well done to the crews of "Jaimee Lee" and "Avail "
